Frei Brothers Chardonnay 2014 750ML      
Sku: 20798

Frei Brothers Reserve is a winemaking story more than a century in the making. In 1890, Swiss immigrant Andrew Frei purchased the core of what is now Frei Ranch in Sonoma County's Dry Creek Valley. The superb stretch of land was already a vineyard, but Frei brought it to prominence when he built a winery that produced 20,000 cases of wine annually by 1895. In 1903, Frei turned the winery over to his sons, Walter and Louis, who adopted the name Frei Brothers.

Tasting notes
This Chardonnay expresses toasty aromas and complexvarietal characters of lemon and citrus fruit, which harmonize beautifully in its soft, mellow finish.

Certainly a rich and nuanced style of wine that speaks to flavors of baked apples and pears and a discernible buttery richness from a slumber in toasty oak barrels. An indulging wine - would be great with crab.

Wine maker notes
We craft our Frei Brothers Reserve wines in a gentle, traditional style enhanced by the use of modern technology, which makes fruit the focus and showcases the best that each varietal and appellation have to offer. The Chardonnay grapes were whole clusters pressed to eliminate bitterness and maximize fresh fruit characters. The wine was briefly cold settled and then racked before fermentation. 97% of this Chardonnay was barrel fermented and oak aged, and temperature was monitored not to exceed 65F, to produce a slower, cooler fermentation that ensured an even, clean product. This process resulted in a generous and varietally true Chardonnay. To create a flavorful finish to the wine, the juice underwent sur lie aging for five months and 100% malolactic fermentation, resulting in a buttery texture and deep, layered flavors.
