    I find that it is difficult to come across a California Chardonnay which has a nice balance of acidity and toasty oak. But Frank Family has always done a great job of combining the two. Their Chardonnay is medium bodied, a little creamy, but it has tropical (pineapple) and citrus and melon notes, plus a little butter. A great wine to pair with many foods, thanks to the presence of acidity. Plus, they are the NICEST people at the winery, so they will continue to get my business.

    Color: Paler straw

    Nose: Spicy oak mixed with wonderful white and tropical fruits of peach, pear, green melon and yellow apple, followed by some butterscotch.

    Palate: I think that amandalaine above, perfectly described the best qualities of this wine. A beautiful mix of buttery and crisp acidity, those fruits from the nose are also mixed with the creaminess and cedar from the barrel fermentation. Nicely done!
