Type: Chardonnay
Principal varietal(s):

Just released, this Chardonnay from the excellent 2009 vintage is drinking beautifully right out of the box. Lovely balance of fruit and acid keeps the wine fresh and energetic - a characteristic of all of Freestone's wines. This one shows a mix of lemony citrus and stone fruits - the citrus has the edge at this point - as well as touches of roasted cashews and spice. About 40% of the wine is from their Freestone vineyards; the rest from Dutton Ranch and Bacigalupi. - HK 2011-04-12
