Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Chardonnay 2014
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay is a non-malolactic 100% Chardonnay that's 45% barrel-fermented. The wine is sensational. There are nearly 10,000 cases of this wine, which shows loads of white peach, honeysuckle, green apple and melon notes in a distinctive, clean, steely Chablis-like style. There is some tropical fruit, such as pineapple, but the overall character is one of great acid, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and no real oak influence. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.
