The 2010 Freedom Hill Chardonnay has a nose of apples, pears with hints of peach, spice and citrus notes. It enters your mouth with these same fruits, a purity of fresh acidity and layers of stoniness - both river stones and the "stone" of a peach. These flavors extend across the palate and the minerality broadens into the 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.
