Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chard made a terrific impression on the panel. It opens with a pleasant apple bouquet with hints of pineapple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, perfectly balanced between its fruit and acidity. The flavor profile is a very tasty apple with a perfect dose of light oak. The finish is dry and refreshing. The panel suggested that this terrific Chard would pair perfectly with grilled halibut or grilled swordfish with a mango salsa. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2007 Freestone Chardonnay has all the minerality and terroir characteristics that the 2006 Chardonnay possessed, but with an added weight and purity that expresses all that we are trying to achieve at Freestone. The long, dry growing season yielded smaller than typical clusters and grapes, so juice yields were lower than expected overall for the 2007 vintage, resulting in wines with great concentration and precision. Steely, yet unctuous, this wine generously offers up aromas of smoked cedar, wet earth, honeysuckle and fresh tangerine, while on the palate it provides mineral-driven citrus, nectar, honey, and an acid structure that contributes power and persistence.
