Freemark Abbey Chardonnay Napa Valley 2018 - 750ml

$ 40.00

93 Points Vinous
"The 2018 Chardonnay is a very pretty, nuanced wine that deftly balances textural richness and vibrancy. Lemon peel, orchard fruit, mint and bright floral notes are finely sculpted in this classy, wonderfully polished Chardonnay from Freemark Abbey."

92 points Jeb Dunnuck
"These wines are now made by Kristy Melton. The 2018 Chardonnay now goes partially through malolactic fermentation, aged in 45% new French oak, and it's a richer yet beautifully balanced Chardonnay. Notes of lemon oil, orange blossom, and honeysuckle, with just touch of toastiness, are followed by a wine that’s beautifully balanced, medium to full-bodied, and layered on the palate, with loads to love."

92 points James Suckling

"A fresh, creamy white with sliced-apple and pear character, as well as some pie-crust and praline aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Flavorful, yet tame on the palate. Drink or hold."

Winemaker's Notes

The 2018 Napa Valley Chardonnay is a rich and complex wine. Aromas of ripe Fuji apple, butterscotch and lemon curd are present on the nose. The barrel fermentation added complex aromas of soft vanilla, angel food cake and baking spices. The palate is full, creamy and rich, reminiscent of the texture of panna cotta. The partial malolactic fermentation created a suppleness to the wine while preserving enough acidity to keep it fresh and vibrant.
