After 3 bountiful vintages, 2015 resulted in much smaller berry sizes, lower yields, but enhanced quality with more concentrated flavors.  Cool nights throughout the growing season helped retain this wine's characteristic acidity.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Beautifully aromatic with notes of peach, apricot and some subtle oak notes. A rich mouthfeel fills the palate balanced with crisp acidity and flavors of stone fruit, pineapple and crème brulee. Well-integrated oak notes are present on the long, persistent finish.
Vineyard Notes
Dutton Ranch’s Sullivan Vineyard is located on a gentle north facing slope at a 200 foot elevation in the Green Valley sub-AVA of the Russian River Valley. With 30+ year old plantings of Wente selection Chardonnay growing in Goldridge soil, Sullivan Vineyard offers a rich and luscious wine that belies the crisp acidity present.
Production Notes
Grapes were hand-sorted and whole clusters were gently pressed into French oak barrels. The wine was barrel-fermented with native yeasts and underwent 100% native malolactic fermentation. It was aged sur lie in barrel for 15 months with frequent battonage.
Winemaker Notes
Hand-picked fruit from the Sullivan Vineyard was barrel-fermented with native yeasts followed by 100% malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged sur lie for 15 months in French oak.
