Dr. Konstantin Frank Chardonnay Barrel Fermented 2007
The floral and fruity bouquet, with mineral and toasty elements, is in harmony with this style of Chardonnay. Aromas of peach, quince and melon on the nose give way to a supple texture with great fruit concentration, vibrant acidity and a long finish. This wine will continue to develop layers of nuances for years to come. Exemplifies the food-friendly style at Dr. Frank, with good acidity, integrated and not overwhelming oak, moderate alcohol, and a malolactic character that does not dominate the wine.Add winemaker's notes

Smooth, rounded, delicate, tastes of pears and vanilla. A wine made in the Burgundian tradition, with an elegant balance of fruit and acidity commingled with oak complexity. Chardonnay is an inordinately versatile grape, accompanying a broad array of foods.
This ambitious white shows concentration, structure and plenty of oak. The toasty, smoky oak flavors obscure the pear and apple fruit now, but there's enough body and acidity to match with food. Drink now through 2007.
Tropical fruit aromas mingle with toasted oak on the nose of this elegant wine from Finger Lakes pioneer Dr. Frank. On the palate, the wine offers appealing and balanced flavors of creamy vanilla, spice and vibrant, lively fruit, making it an excellent choice for everything from salmon to spicier Asian cuisine.
This has good weight and focus, with a mix of fresh green and yellow apple notes and a bright, floral-tinged finish that hangs on nicely. Drink now.

This winery was founded by Dr. Konstantin Frank, the "Father of Vinifera Wine" in the eastern United States. The wine is an elegant, well-balanced wine displaying pears and apples in both aroma and taste, and a lingering aftertaste. It would enhance shrimp scampi or veal in cream sauce. Enjoy this wine and drink a toast to Dr. Frank!
