Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (87)

Review date: March 30, 2016

Wine Review: This white gold colored Chardonnay from the Finger Lakes is a good everyday offering. It opens with a mild grapefruit bouquet with hints of green apple and lime. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, fruit forward and juicy. The flavor profile is a pleasant lemon and green apple blend with hints of mild pineapple and a touch of grapefruit. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Chard would pair well with roasted garlic chicken. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The floral and fruity bouquets of this wine, with mineral and toasty elements, are in harmony with this style of Chardonnay. The aromas of white peach, quince and melon on the nose give way to a supple texture with good fruit concentration, vibrant acidity and a clean finish. This Chardonnay exemplifies the food friendly style that we strive for at Dr. Frank's with good acidity, integrated and not overwhelming oak, moderate alcohol and a wine not dominated by the malolactic character.

Organic status: not organic
