    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine is a mix of the best selections from the estate plantings, including some heirloom selections that define its character and structure. Initial aromas fill the senses with stone fruit and honeysuckle followed by citrus zest, wet stone, vanilla and toasted brioche. With a rich, creamy texture cut by crisp acidity, this Chardonnay has great intensity with vibrant, concentrated citrus, lemongrass, peach, honey and lemon crème brûlée flavors. A full-bodied wine that is texturally complete with balanced minerality and a lingering finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bone dry, minerally and brisk in mouthwatering acidity, this has subtle yet rich flavors of tropical fruit, citrus, green apple and honey. It shows real elegance and complexity.

    A bit more layered than the Pastorale, the 2010 Chardonnay Estate Freestone Vineyard caresses the palate from beginning to end. Lemon, pastry, white flowers, crushed rocks and a whisper of French oak all emerge from the glass in the seamless, totally polished Chardonnay. The aromas and flavors remain bright, focused and beautifully articulated from start to finish. This is another fabulous wine from Joseph Phelps.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    Sweet, poised, elegant nose. Lean and refined, quite oaky but lifted and elegant; understated but packed with flavour. Good length.

    Decanter

    Pure, clean and focused on snappy green apple, floral, honeysuckle and mineral flavors. The sheer vibrancy gives this a unique personality, ending with a long, mineral-laced finish. Drink now through 2020.

    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.
