Frank Family Carneros Chardonnay

Tasting Notes
Technical Details

A bright and balanced wine with vibrant aromatics of baked apple, white nectarine, and toasted oak. A lively entry of tropical fruit and citrus expands with notes of rich lemon curd and brioche bread pudding. Ample yet refined, this unmistakably Carneros wine finishes with a refreshing wave of acidity.

100% Chardonnay grape blend.
This wine contains allergens, sulfites.
The Estate

The foundation for the Carneros Chardonnay is Frank Family’s Lewis Vineyard with additions of neighboring Beckstoffer Vineyards in NapaCarneros and Sangiacomo Vineyards located in Sonoma-Carneros.

Wine Making

As with all my wines, I am looking for texture and complexity. To achieve this, I practice a long cold fermentation and then put the wine through partial malolactic fermentation to soften the overall high acidity. While aging, I employ batonage (hand-stirring the lees) regularly to promote depth and longevity in the wine

Frank Family's 2020 Carneros Chardonnay is a pretty wine done in an airy style that is hugely appealing. Orchard fruit, lemon peel, mint, and white pepper lend to brightness. Understated and elegant the Carneros Chardonnay is a winner.
