The Freedom Hill Dijon clone Chardonnays are Meursault-like: darker fruit with a stony minerality and rich textures in the mouth. I struggled with the specific style for Freedom Hill Chardonnay until my visit to Burgundy and Chablis in 2003. There I tasted a grand cru Chablis fermented entirely in used barrels. The ripe fruit and intense minerality balanced perfectly with the lees component and textural enhancement derived from barrel fermentation.
The 2009 Freedom Hill Chardonnay has a nose of ripe pear and peach with hints of spice and citrus blossom. It enters your mouth with ripe peach, pear and apricot flavors with an undercurrent of peach and apricot pit minerality. These flavors extend across the palate and the minerality broadens into the finish. Texturally complex with a nice backbone of acidity and an extended finish. The combination of layered fruit, length, and complex undercurrent of minerality makes it a good match for richer white meat dishes. Match with rich fishes, wild birds, risottos and cheeses. Drinkable at release, it will develop over 6 years.
"Light and bright, balancing its pear and nutmeg flavors against lively acidity, lingering enticingly on the finish. Drink now through 2014. 861 cases made."
