Frances J. Chardonnay 2019
The Frances J Vineyard lies in a dramatic Amphitheater-like bowl in Corralitos, framed by steep sandy slopes of an ancient marine terrace. The 25 year-old vines benefit from warm days and cool nights. This wine was fermented and aged for 12 months sur lie in barrel with 1/3 new oak (Barrel Maker: Damy, Forest: Nevers, Toast: Medium Long) and then spent six months aging sur lie in stainless steel. Aromas of Asian pear and honeydew melon lead into a zesty palate of lime and green apple.
