The 2018 Dutton Ranch Chardonnay is fresh, lively, and fun to drink. Honeysuckle, white rose petal, lemon meringue, and white flowers delight on the nose while crushed white rose petal, Bartlett pear, honeydew melon, and Meyer lemon fill out the palate for a balanced, full-bodied, Chardonnay.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Dutton Ranch is composed of 1,100 acres of premium Sonoma County vineyards planted on coveted Goldridge sandy loam soil. Fruit for this vintage was sourced from several locations within Dutton Ranch's Russian River Valley vineyards. Plots in the warmer end of the valley contributed ripe tropical elements, while those from cooler areas lent minerality and a structural backbone.
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 9 months with weekly battonage.
