97 points Decanter: "A stunning wine from the iconic Freedom Hill vineyard in the Mount Pisgah AVA. It balances savoury brilliance with finely etched seaspray minerality. A reductive, smoky flint aromatic opens and morphs into saline notes, beeswax and petrichor alongside a grilled lemon peel note. The palate walks a razor's edge of oyster shell minerality, savoury grilled salt, and beeswax notes. Powerful, beautiful and undeniably full of joy."
Flinty and saline with big texture and mouth-filling weight, an excellent choice for the cellar! -Marcus
Our 2021 Freedom Hill Chardonnay is erupting with powerful aromas of tangerine blossom and Meyer lemon layered with lemon balm and ginger. The palate is a balance of density and elegance, with a razor-sharp acidity, limestone texture, and an intense saline minerality in the finish. -Walter Scott
2019 vintage notes
98 points Wine Advocate: "Weightless power is what defines the 2019 Chardonnay Freedom Hill Vineyard. It offers textural breadth, expansive flavors and incredible length, with singular aromas combining pure citrus with youthful flintiness. The palate swells with salty, limey tang before fleshing out to savory nutty tones, and the finish just goes on and on. This pure, singular expression is compelling, even at this early stage, and will offer more with time in the cellar."
Delicate aromas of tangerine blossom, preserved lemon and mirabelle plum layered with lemon thyme. A balance of density and elegance, with racy acidity and an intense chalky minerality on the finish.
Racy! Lemon-lime big time. Whereas Freedom Hill produces structured and bold Pinots, its Chardonnay yields delicacy with excellent, persistent minerality. - Marcus
