Franciscan Chardonnay on sale now!

Franciscan Chardonnay Napa Valley....$9.99 
With Chardonnay, Franciscan Estate looks for the sort of richness and opulence that malolactic fermentation and sur lie aging in oak barrels bring. They help to deliver that delicious, creamy complexity for which Franciscan Estate Chardonnay is known. But Chardonnay also needs a foundation and structure for all of that richness and fruit. Minerality is essential. So we turn to cooler vineyards in southern Napa Valley, in particular the Carneros District, where the soil is dense clay. The result is grapes that offer impressive structure and mineral flair. ~ Janet Myers, Winemaker
