Description2013 Joseph Phelps Vineyards Freestone Pastorale Vineyard Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast, USA
VINOUS (ANTONIO GALLONI)A wine of pure energy, the 2013 Chardonnay Pastorale Vineyard is all about intensity. Interestingly, in 2013 it looks like the Pastorale has more depth and volume than the Freestone, when typically the roles are reversed. There is an attractive oiliness to the fruit, yet the flavors remain bright and nuanced throughout. Lemon oil, almonds and white pepper are laced into the highly expressive finish.
WINE ENTHUSIASTLightly tropical and entirely mineral-driven, racing in acidity, this tightly wound wine is cradled in toasty, integrated oak that's still trying to let go. It shows hints of the goodness within, from crisp green apple to caramel and lemon meringue. Drink now through 2023.
