Salmon Run Chardonnay 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Vinification: 2005 was a vintage that favors white cool climate varieties with cool and moist growing conditions during both summer and fall. The Chardonnay grapes were picked early October with good ripeness. The grapes were crushed, pressed and the juice was cold settled. Close to half of the volume was fermented in predominantly French oak barrels and the rest was fermented in stainless steel tanks. This practice makes the Salmon Run Chardonnay lighter, fruitier with a less oak dominated character. The Chardonnay was blended, cold stabilized, filtered and adjusted for bottling. Description: The 2005 bottling presents the green gold hue typical of cool-climate Chardonnay. The floral and fruity bouquets of this wine, with mineral and toasty elements, are in harmony with this style of Chardonnay. The aromas of white peach, quince and melon on the nose give way to a supple texture with good fruit concentration, vibrant acidity and a clean finish. This Chardonnay exemplifies the food friendly style that we strive for at Dr. Frank's with good acidity, integrated and not overwhelming oak, moderate alcohol and a wine not dominated by the malolactic character. Analysis: Alcohol: 12.0 % Acidity: .81g/100 ml pH: 3.4 Sugar: 0.2 %

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
