97 point Chardonnay for Spring

2017 Joseph Phelps Chardonnay, Pastorale Vineyard, Sonoma Coast
A blend of two Chardonnay blocks from our Pastorale Vineyard located on the western Sonoma Coast. The 2017 boasts delicate aromas of citrus blossom and gardenias met by Meyer lemon and tangy spices, culminating in a richly round and vibrant offering with touches of vanilla and toasted brioche. A winery-exclusive release to enjoy this spring and summer.

97 points, "This is really stylish and unique with subtle resin, pine-nut and pine-needle character to the dried-apple aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, yet reserved and tight. Linear and compacted. Fantastic." - James Suckling
