    Wine.com Quick Facts

    Region: Napa Valley, California

    Varietal: Chardonnay

    Item no. 93674

    Winemaker's Notes:

    This vintage continues Franciscan's tradition of using the lost art of wild yeast fermentation. Half of the blend was made in this labor-intensive way to showcase the expressive Chardonnay fruit and the small lot craftsmanship that makes Franciscan wines distinctive.

    Appearance: Pale lemon yellow

    Aroma: Pretty stone fruit and ripe pear, with lemon peel notes. Layered aromas with enticing minerality, hints of cream and vanilla, and crisp apple undertones.

    Flavor: Fresh and lively, yet good richness and body. Flavors of Golden Delicious and pear tart fill the palate, accentuated by fresh citrus and delicate tropical notes. The round mid-palate is filled with fruit and subtle toasty oak, extending to a lingering crisp finish of mineral and bright citrus.

    88 Points

    "Bright green-gold hue. Reserved scents of white peach and pear. Juicy flavors of golden delicious apple. Hints of white peach in the close."
