2015 Chardonnay, Freestone Vineyards
Winemaker Notes Bright and fresh, the 2015 Chardonnay envelopes the senses with lemon zest, green apple and jasmine aromas. A richly textured mouthfeel with inviting citrus notes, stone fruit and lemon custard throughout the palate, followed by crushed oyster shell minerality and a subtle toasted brioche finish.
Winemaking Data To preserve fruit integrity and freshness, our vineyards are picked under lights and whole cluster pressing cold directly to barrel for fermentation. Barrels were stirred as necessary during malolactic fermentation, resulting in a focused, opulent wine.
Vintage Notes The 2015 Chardonnay has a fragrant bouquet mix of honeysuckle, green apple and lemon peel with richly layered baked apple, stone fruit and a light toasty oak influence. A bright and focused wine with a pleasing mouthfeel and a delicate tropical touch on the finish.
