Joseph Phelps Chardonnay Freestone Vineyards Sonoma Coast 2015

External Review:

The 2012 Chardonnay Freestone Vineyards displays a light gold color with a green hue, and notes of orange rind, nectarine, tangerine and lemon blossom. Medium to full-bodied with terrific acidity, precision, purity and texture, it is a Burgundian-styled, classic cool-climate California Chardonnay. Drink now–2022.

Made from estate-grown fruit near the chilly Sonoma Coast town of Freestone, this is a fully layered wine, expertly balanced in acidity yet offering plenty of full-figured mouthfeel and viscous pleasure. It delivers an electric mix of Meyer lemon, minerals and brioche, and will please a diverse range of palates.

The 2012 Chardonnay Freestone Vineyard saw slightly less new oak, but achieved the same level of alcohol as the 2011, 13.5%. More tropical in nature, it is a juicy white displaying notes of pineapples, apricot marmalade, wet gravel and a hint of honeyed citrus. With crisp acids, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and a long finish, it can be drunk over the next 5-6 years.

Bright green-yellow. Vibrant aromas of lime orange oil and flowers plus a whiff of brioche. Tactile juicy and crisp with strong fruit-driven flavors of green tropical fruits lemon and pineapple. Very good density and freshness here but in a cooler style than the 2009 bottling. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2010 Chardonnay Freestone Vineyards is gorgeous. Subtle hints of oak frame expressive white stone fruits, citrus and floral notes in this impeccable, layered Chardonnay. Focus, delineation and superb overall balance are the hallmarks here. This i... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Driven by the goal of producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Joe Phelps spent many years searching for an appropriate vineyard site to plant both varietals.

Daybright golden hue. Ripe peach, dried apricot and creamy oak are concentrated on the nose, while the palate offers a mélange of stone fruit, green apple and crenshaw melon. California chardonnay fans will certainly appreciate the generous mouthfeel... Neil Mechanic. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2009 Freestone (Joseph Phelps) Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 750ml
