Accolades - Dr. Konstantin Frank Hilda Chardonnay (2016)Wine & Spirits Magazine: 90 Points, Year's Best Chardonnay. "Named for Konstantin Frank’s daughter, this chardonnay is refreshingly lean. It blends a leesy Weetabix note with flavors that are at once salty and lemony; a mouthwatering white for trout. (176 cases)"
