Overview - Dr. Konstantin Frank Chardonnay (2017)

Viticulture
100% Chardonnay all grown on our Keuka estate vineyards. The vineyards are characterized by shallow, shale based soils with high natural acidity and steep slopes. These vineyards influence the minerality and acid structure and the steep slopes provide excellent water and air drainage. The 2017 vintage was cooler and slightly rainier compared to the hot and dry 2016 vintage rewarding us with grapes with more freshness, delicate aromatics, and bright acidity.

Vinification
40% of the wine was barrel fermented in French and Hungarian oak with regular bâtonnage followed by 9 months of ageing in the same barrels. The remainder 60% was fermented in stainless steel and aged on its lees until blending.

The Wine
The 2017 vintage rewards us with a wine complexed with ripe peach, asian pear, pineapple, ginger and a slight creaminess on the nose. The medium to full bodied mouthfeel is full of green apples, citrus and pineapple balanced just a bit with flavors from oak. Expect the flavors to linger on the palate for quite some time.
