Dr. Konstantin Frank Chardonnay Barrel Fermented 2008

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Creamy vanilla oak mixes pleasantly with pineapple-fruit aromas. Pineapple and citrus flavors carry through the medium-length finish. Lots of oak, but there's enough fruit to provide balance; it just needs a year or so to knit together.

Smooth, rounded, delicate taste of pears and vanilla. A wine made in the Burgundy tradition, it has an elegant balance of fruit and acidity co-mingled with oak complexity.

Toast and butterscotch flavors lead the way in this relatively full-bodied wine, featuring a fine array of crisp apple, peach, pear, melon and citrus notes. Long and full on the finish.

Starts with crisp apples, followed by rich core fruit with melon highlights, full body and a long finish with muted spice flavors.

This ambitious white shows concentration, structure and plenty of oak. The toasty, smoky oak flavors obscure the pear and apple fruit now, but therersquo;s enough body and acidity to match with food. Drink now through 2007.

This winery was founded by Dr. Konstantin Frank, the ldquo;Father of Vinifera Winerdquo; 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!
