St. Francis Winery Chardonnay Sonoma County 2019
Aromas of fresh melon combine with hints of hazelnut and citrus. This medium-bodied Sonoma County Chardonnay displays fresh flavors of butterscotch and pineapple, followed by crisp acidity and a rich, lingering finish.
Fruit for this Chardonnay is picked at night to preserve the wine's delicate flavors, aromas and acidity. Grapes are pressed 100% whole cluster and fermented in different lots. Aging occurs for six months in 100% French oak barrels, with lees stirred by hand to achieve a rich mouthfeel. This wine undergoes partial malolactic fermentation.
