Freestone Vineyards Pinot Noir, Joseph Phelps, Sonoma County, USA 2017
Regular price £60.60
Founded in 1973 by the eponymous Joseph Phelps, this winery is one of the true Napa Valley pioneers, and has set a quality benchmark for Napa ever since its inception. Following a period of expansion and diversification, Joseph Phelps is now concentrating purely on Bordeaux and Burgundy varieties – plus Scheurebe! The production has been scaled back to the point where all the fruit comes from estate vineyards, which is something of a rarity in California. This is now a brilliantly focused, dynamic producer that refuses to rest on its laurels.
Freestone Vineyards Pinot Noir 2017
A complex, textural Pinot Noir that offers aromas of cherry, raspberry, anise and tea leaves, along with a tangerine brightness that expresses the wine’s coastal origins. The palate is generous yet finely structured, with good capacity to age.
