Freemark Abbey Chardonnay 2013

Freemark Abbey Chardonnay 2013

Sku: 055181

Tasting notes
Fresh and medium- bodied with a fruit-centered complexity. The barrel is present in the nos and on the palate and the finish is nice and clean. This is always a Chard that I come back to. WLL

Delivers a solid core of ripe, juicy Chardonnay, with touches of apple, pear, honeydew melon and lightly spicy toasty oak shadings. Ends clean and a touch pithy. Drink now through 2019. 11,105 cases made. -JL

Longtime winemaker Ted Edwards has fashioned a beautiful 2013 Chardonnay, an 11,000-case, non-malolactic, 70% barrel-fermented cuvee from multiple sources throughout Napa. One-third new French oak was used. Notes of delicate pear, apple blossom and tropical fruits emerge from this classic Chardonnay. Medium to full-bodied with a greenish hue to its color, it exhibits impressive layers and minerality. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years.

Wine maker notes
Refreshing lemon, lemon-lime and green apple fruit aromas with flavors predominantly citrus, floral and white peach with well integrated oak complexities. Inviting and refreshing.

Technical notes
Typically one third is barrel fermented while the balance is fermented cold in stainless steel tanks and is transferred to barrels after the fermentation. This non- malolactic chardonnay is aged for 6-8 months in French oak barrels.
