Joseph Phelps Chardonnay Sonoma Estate 2015
Bursting with aromatic floral and citrus notes, the 2013 Chardonnay envelopes the senses with honeysuckle, ripe pear,lemon zest and sweet honey. This wine shows beautifully balanced acidity with mouthwatering green apple and tangy Meyerlemon throughout the richly layered palate to the sumptuously viscous finish.
Wine Enthusiast - "This 100% varietal wine from the cooler outpost of Freestone is so deliciously crisp, bright in minerally lemon and fresh pear. It lingers on the palate in complex ways, elusive one moment, then exuberant the next - a celebration of ideal vintage and place.Editors' Choice"
Wine & Spirits - "There's a taut and penetrating depth of flavor at the core of this chardonnay, from a wind-cooled vineyard among the redwoods near Freestone. It's resolutely dry, with a tangy blood-orange verve, the grip of oak and creaminess of lees providing a context from the clean intensity of the fruit."
