Joseph Phelps Freestone Vineyards Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Wine EnthusiastYear after year, this wine from a spectacularly cool-climate site impresses and intrigues. A crisp green-apple note is followed by high-toned acidity etched in Meyer lemon and wild lime flavors. The fresh, fruity core is well balanced and melds with a grip of oak on the finish, adding ample body and weight.
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chardonnay Freestone Vineyard features delicate lemon juice, orange blossoms and baking bread notes with hints of white grapefruit, chalk dust, yuzu and lemongrass. The palate is medium to full-bodied, very refreshing and tightly wound at this youthful stage, with super intense citrus flavors and gorgeous mineral sparks, finishing long and savory. 2,725 cases produced.
