Freemark Abbey Chardonnay Napa Valley 2007
This yellow colored Chard opens with a mild green apple bouquet with hints of cantaloupe and light lemon. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, and shows a soft and viscous mouthfeel. The flavor profile is a light lime with notes of integrated minerality. There were also hints of light oak as well. The finish is dry and shows some finesse. This food friendly Chard focuses on the fruit first and therefore is very versatile. I would pair it with grilled halibut or Dover sole. Enjoy. Few Napa Valley wineries can rival the rich and storied history of Freemark Abbey. It all began in 1886, when Josephine Tychson established the original winery along Route 29 in St. Helena where Freemark Abbey still stands. She kicked off a history of innovation, becoming one of the first woman winegrowers on record. Though many consider Freemark's library wines a religious experience . . . they've never actually been run by monks. The current name of the winery was created in 1939, when the three owners (Charles Freeman, Markquand Foster, and Abbey Ahern) combined their names to form the moniker "Freemark Abbey." The merlot is a blend of grapes coming from local mountain vineyards as well as the Napa Valley floor. Aged in a combination of small French and American oak barrels. The 2007 Chardonnay has a very appealing straw color. The nose reveals aromas of baked apple, ripe banana and lemon oil with a hint of floral notes. This Chardonnay has an exceptional mouth feel with flavors of apple and butterscotch that integrate well with a subtle touch of oak spice. Good balance with crisp and creamy viscosity carries through a long fruitful finish.
