Frank Family Vineyards Chardonnay Carneros 2018

The predominant maritime influence of the Pacific Ocean creates the cool temperature, fog and wind that make Carneros ideally suited for growing cool climate varieties. The restricting soils result in extremely low yields, producing grapes with strong character and balanced acidity. The 2018 edition of this wine is creamy and well balanced that is medium to full bodied and with decent weight to it. It’s layered with apple, lemon curd and candied peaches with a lasting finish of vanilla and baking spice.
