Freeman Ryo-Fu Chardonnay 2019 750ml


Ryo-fu is Japanese for “cool breeze,” a fitting name for this Russian  River Valley Chardonnay shaped by the chilly winds that blow in from the Pacific Ocean. Our local ryo-fu, along with the region’s famous fog and sandy soils, create ideal growing conditions for this Chardonnay.

Similar to the spectacular 2018 vintage, we harvested the Chardonnays for the 2019 Ryo-fu at the end of September, so the grapes enjoyed a long, even growing season.

The subtle nose of the 2019 Ryo-fu combines elements of Gravenstein apples, nutmeg and lemon zest. An equally subtle palate follows, with a soft, lush and seamless texture, full of gorgeous stone fruit flavors. Moderate acidity stays in the background, but comes on strong in the long finish. Expect this wine to be at its best from mid-2021 through 2025. If you plan to open it soon, be sure to give it plenty of air to enhance its pretty aromas.
