2013 Joseph Phelps / Freestone Vineyards Chardonnay Pastorale Vineyard
Sonoma Coast, California
WB Rating: 92

Alcohol by volume: 13.5%
Price at time of purchase: $70.00 (Winery)
Type: Chardonnay
Principal varietal(s):

As always the Pastorale Chardonnay bottling is slightly fuller and richer than the also excellent Freestone Vineyards bottling. The 2013 shows more of the stone fruit and honeyed citrus side of Chardonnay than the crisper and more minerally side. Has a genuinely Meursault-like feel to its nutty nuances. Absolutely delicious and complete Chardonnay. - HK 2017-02-22
