Our 2016 Dutton Ranch Chardonnay showcases the appellation and our vision for this wine beautifully, giving us the classic mix of lively fruit, nutty spice, creamy richness and mouthwatering freshness we love. The nose leads with round yet focused aromas of pear, lemon oil, brioche, and roasted chestnuts. Delicate lily of the valley floral hints weave their way through, adding a pretty touch. The mouth is full of rich decadence while retaining its core of bright acidity, like a key lime crème brulee. Flavors of green apple, mango, apricot, and Eureka lemon are accented by toasted hazelnuts and toffee.

From a deft practitioner of the variety, this delivers bold balanced flavors of Meyer lemon, apricot and pear but remains most memorable for its salty gritty undertone of texture and minerality. Bright and supple, it's a delicious wine.

Tilts toward the tart side, with a potent lemon-citrus character amid green apple and green pear flavors. Mouthwatering throughout. Drink now through 2022. 4,500 cases made.

The 2016 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch gives up savory notions of yeast extract, lightly browned toast, roasted almonds and popcorn with a core of baked apples and poached pears. Medium-bodied with a pleasantly tart backbone lifting the savory, understated flavors, it finishes on a mineral note. 5,247 cases produced.
