Joseph Phelps – Chardonnay 2016, Pastorale Vineyard – Sonoma Coast

The nose is fruity and offers freshness and a small intensity. It reveals notes of green peach, crunchy pear and small notes of crunchy green apple associated with fine hints of juicy quince and a very discreet hint of juicy kumquat. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers a juicy/acidulous frame, a good structure as well as tension. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy pear, fleshy peach and small notes of quince associated with fine hints of juicy lemon and Mirabelle. Very beautiful persistence with very discreet chew.
