Salmon Run Chardonnay 2009
The 2009 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 pineapple, pear and watermelon 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.
A very nice crisp minimally oaked chardonnay with slight tropical notes; very nicely done!
