Frank Family Carneros Chardonnay Magnum 2016 1.5L
Our Carneros Chardonnay is barrel fermented in 34% new, 33% once and 33% twice-filled French oak barrels for 9 months. While ageing on the lees, the wine was hand stirred regularly to promote depth and longevity. This wine appears light straw in the glass with aromas of toasted brioche, baking spices, and candied lemon rind. On the palate, the Carneros Chardonnay is full-bodied and creamy yet balanced by its lively acidity; with nuanced flavors of yellow apple, lemon curd, baked pear, melon, and subtle hints of oak toast.
Wine EnthusiastFleshy in fig, guava and a hearty helping of vanilla oak, this wine is of moderate build and lushly likable. The finish offers a sophisticated seasoning of anise.
