2018 Franciscan Chardonnay

February 28, 2020 - Norman Bentley
#09-20-PIE

The 2018 Franciscan Monterey and Napa County Chardonnay used to be called Franciscan Estate Chardonnay, causing the Chardonnay Queen to state, "what's the difference, it is still a really good bottle of wine!"

The Franciscan Chardonnay has a fragrant nose of tropical fruit, citrus, and green apple. The flavors range from pear, to sweet apple, and then into a little lemon. The wine is delicate, and yet, has great depth, leading to a hint of toasty oak in the finish. This delicious wine simply begs for another sip! The alcohol content is 13.5%, and Norm's score is 91.

We enjoyed the Franciscan with shrimp and cheese tortellini in a sauce featuring olive oil, basil and Parmesan cheese, placed alongside a steamed artichoke.

score: 91

price: $13 - $17
