Frank Family Carneros Chardonnay 2017
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 EnthusiastWith an oaky, buttery intensity, this wine is tropical in nature and richly lush on the palate-a full-figured expression of the grape sourced from both Beckstoffer and Hudson vineyards, as well as the producer's own Lewis Vineyard within the appellation.
