The 2019 Chardonnay has an abundance of floral character, crushed rock, and citrus notes. The palate is filled with lemon zest and freshly sliced pear, tangy acidity, and a layered finish rich in mineral and briny undertones.

From the producer's Freestone-region estate vineyards, this wine sings in oyster shell, sea air and crisp apple. With an ethereal quality throughout, it combines a balanced richness of body and mouthfeel with lingering freshness and spice.

The 2019 Chardonnay Freestone Vineyards offers more Meyer lemon, honeyed toast, spice, and savory mineral aromas and flavors, yet it shows a similar purity, balance, and length on the palate. It opens up nicely with time in the glass, and this medium-bodied, racy, focused beauty has another 5-7 years of prime drinking ahead of it.

Spicy and rich-tasting, with hints of marmalade to the well-knit white fruit and ripe citrus flavors. Buttery richness lingers on the finish, with pastry and tropical fruit accents. Drink now through 2024.

The 2019 Chardonnay Freestone Vineyards is creamy and open-knit, which makes it a good choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Lemon confit, marzipan, chamomile, dried flowers, mint and tangerine oil fill out the layers nicely. This is an especially inviting, young Sonoma Coast Chardonnay, with all the elements beautifully balanced.
