This Chardonnay made a big impression at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair, walking away with a Gold Medal & Best of Class award. Old vines and cool climate really come together in this Green Valley beauty with vibrant lemon zest, fresh peach and floral notes set against a racy minerality and mouthwatering acidity.
This is a Dutton Ranch chardonnay, showing cooked-apple, lemon and peach character with praline and vanilla undertones. Opulent, yet in check. Full-bodied and layered. Very long and flavorful. No wood here. Fermented and aged in concrete eggs. Such a beautiful and pure single-vineyard Sonoma white. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
