2018 Freeman Chardonnay Ryo-fu Russian River

Fresh lemon and lime balances oak-derived vanilla on this excellent wine from the eastern end of the Russian River Valley. The fruit builds in the glass, with more tropical notes coming through with oxygen. Not the overbearing butter-popcorn of many American Chardonnays, but rather an elegant, textural experience, very easy to recommend. (JH 06/06/2021)

2018 Freeman Chardonnay Ryo-fu Russian River

Media Reviews

Antonio Galloni

The 2018 Chardonnay Ryo-fu is a very pretty and expressive wine. Dried pear, apricot, chamomile and spice all meld together. Silky and deep in the glass, the 2018 offers tons of near term appeal and plenty of class. There is lovely weight and density here. Vineyard sources are Charles Heintz, Keefer Ranch and Searby. 92 points
