    Winemaker's Notes:

    Greenish straw in color, our Chardonnay is concentrated with ripe stone fruit aromas and flavors, with an underlying subtle toasty oak complexity. Very ripe peach with ripe banana is interlaced with vanilla, lime-aide, clove, nutmeg and pineapple upside down cake. This wine has great viscosity, depth and a crisp long fruitful finish. The flavors in the palate are predominantly citrus, like orange, mandarin and sweet grapefruit with a honey suckle nuance. The 2009 Chardonnay is a pleasant experience, inviting from start to finish...enjoy.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is an oaky, leesy Chardonnay, and quite a good one. Although it's super rich in fruit, it shows a crisply acidic minerality that grounds it and makes it serious. That fruit is wildly forward in pineapple tart, pear butter, Key lime pie and golden apricot. Editors' Choice

    A blend of different estate vineyards owned by Jess Jackson, the 2009 Chardonnay Napa is a non-malolactic effort that exhibits lots of citrus blossom, tangerine and lemon oil notes offered in a medium-bodied, steely, crisp style. The oak component is pushed way to the background in this outstanding, Chablis-like, vibrant, zesty Chardonnay. Enjoy it over the next 2-4 years. I would encourage Freemark Abbey to make more wines in this style.
