The 2003 bottling presents the green gold hue typical of cool-climate Chardonnay. The floral and fruity bouquet of this wine with mineral and toasty elements is in harmony with this style of Chardonnay. The aromas of peach, quince and melon on the nose give way to a supple texture with great fruit concentration, vibrant acidity and a long finish. This wine will continue to develop layers of nuances for years to come. This Chardonnay exemplifies the food friendly style that we strive for at Dr. Frank's with good acidity, integrated and not overwhelming oak, moderate alcohol and a wine not dominated by the malolactic character.
