2017 Joseph Phelps "Freestone Vineyards" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (Previously $45)

SKU #1431447 94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Looking first at the Chardonnays, the 2017 Chardonnay Freestone Vineyards comes from a site on the Sonoma Coast and spent 13 months in 42% new French oak. It’s a winner, offering terrific notes of ripe peach, citrus oil, and salty minerality, medium to full body, good acidity, and fabulous overall balance. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A white that grows slowly on the palate with dried apples and light pear and lime character. Medium body, bright acidity and a clean and vivid finish. Serious and linear. Inner quote mark (3/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chardonnay Freestone Vineyards is a very pretty and also understated wine from Phelps. Yellow orchard fruit, white flowers, chamomile and lightly honeyed notes all grace this expressive, pliant Chardonnay. Beams of supporting acidity support the nuanced finish. This is in a pretty restrained style for Phelps, and that is not a bad thing, as these wines have, at times, been a bit bombastic. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Bright and fragrant in aromas of jasmine and lemon rind, this wine impresses in its textured minerality of wet stone and sea spray. Structured and complex, it shines in a light-bodied approach that never holds back in flavors of apple and pear. (VB) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Aged 13 months in 42% new French oak puncheons and barrels, the 2017 Chardonnay Freestone Vineyard has an open nose of lush white peach, apricot, baked quince and poached pears with nuances of acacia blossom, wet stone and lemon zest. Medium-bodied, it’s very lively in the mouth with layers of citrus and stone fruit with mineral accents, framed by great tangy acidity, finishing long and clean. (EB) 92+ Inner quote mark (4/2019)
