The 2017 Chardonnay has a voluptuous, ripe nose of lemon peel and candied tropical fruit followed by vibrant citrus throughout the palate with a flinty, saline quality and a hint of toast on the finish.

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.

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.

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.

This offers fresh-cut green apple and lemon-lime flavors that are backed by fresh acidity. The minerally finish features some saline notes, which linger with crunchy freshness. Drink now through 2023. 2,400 cases made.
