VinoUS Media Review
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. (Antonio Galloni)
Wine Enthusiast Review
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.
Wine Tasting Notes
The nose reveals aromas of toasted brioche, apricot pits, lemon oil, shaved almonds, flower petals and chamomile infused with honey. There is great concentration, weight and intensity in this Chardonnay with vibrant, focused flavors of honeysuckle, quince, orange blossom and a touch of apple skins to tempt the palate. This wine is full-bodied, has great length and has a tangy, citrus finish with tremendous precision and minerality.
