Review:

The 2011 Freedom Hill Chardonnay has a detailed and focused nose of apples and pears with spice and ripe citrus notes. Fresh stone fruit flavors are balanced by bright 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 8 years. - the winery

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

2009 Wine Spectator - 90 points - Light and bright, showing pear and nutmeg flavors, with lively acidity. - H.S.

This Dijon clone Chardonnay's flavors and texture will complement a wide variety of vegetarian and white meat dishes with rich flavors. It will benefit from up to 6 years of bottle age. - the winery

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

The 2008 Freedom Hill Chardonnay has an generous nose of white and yellow fruits, spice, orange blossom and stones that remind me of granite and marble. It enters your mouth with rich yellow fruit, citrus and melon flavors, stones, and hints of spice. The texture is full throughout the palate, with a solid backbone of acidity and the wine lingers into an extended finish. Richly layered, with complex flavors in the mid-palate, it reminds me a cross between well made Maconais and Chablis. Match this wine with shellfish, roasted birds, and cheeses. Drinkable at release, it will develop over 6 years. - the winery

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

The 2007 St Innocent Freedom Hill Chardonnay is sometimes compared to a white Burgundy from Meursault - richly textured mouthfeel and distinct sense of stones. slate, and a crisp finish.

The scent of the 2007 Freedom Hill Chardonnay contains distinct notes of slate, granite and marble, entwined with hints of pear, citrus blossom, and toast. Flavors are a bit austere, with minerality combining in layers of melon, pear, apple, and spice. The finish is long and shifts from crisp fresh acidity and citrus to clean slate and a rich, leesy texture.
