The 2013 Freeman Ryo-fu Chardonnay has a light to medium straw color and shows off the ripeness of the 2013 harvest in the nose. There are aromas of apricots, passion fruit, and honey with subtle hints of fennel and toast. The texture on the palate also demonstrates how 2013 was ideal, with a rich structure we haven't seen for several years. Fine acidity cuts through the viscous mouthfeel from the mid palate right into the finish and allows the fresh apple and mango flavors to shine. Drink the 2013 Ryo-fu from 2015 through 2018.

Wine EnthusiastFreeman's Ryo-fu Chardonnay always is a tasty, delicious wine. This wine shows a purity of tropical and citrus fruits, with subtle mineral, roasted nut and dried apple complexities, brightened by crisp, lemony acidity. Drink now-2017, but not too cold.
