• Wine & Spirits Magazine Awards 2014 Joseph Phelps Chardonnay 92 Points

    We are pleased to share a new review from Wine & Spirits Magazine's August 2016 issue:

    92 points | 2014 Joseph Phelps Chardonnay, Freestone Vineyards Sonoma Coast
    Planted in 1999,The Joseph Phelps vineyard in Freestone grows over 20 acres of chardonnay on wind-cooled hillsides. This vintage is vibrant and delicious: The richness of its oak quickly becomes an afterthought as the coltish acidity of the site take hold, driving aromas of yellow raspberries and grapefruit that bristle with energy in the end. Decant this for mahi mahi, or age it another few years.

    This latest vintage of Joseph Phelps Chardonnay will be available for purchase from the winery in summer 2016.
