2015 Dutton Vineyard ChardonnayJoin To Purchase
Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch is totally strutting its stuff at this youthful stage, offering up flamboyant lemon curd, green mango and fresh pineapple notes with suggestions of candied ginger, nutmeg, toasted almonds and honey drizzled brioche. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is completely coated with creamy textured tropical fruits, supported by a lively line of freshness, finishing very long and fantastically spicy.
The 2015 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch is another rich, ample wine. Here, the interplay of bright minerality, savoriness and structure is quite appealing. Sage, menthol, dried pear and chamomile add layers of dimension to this very pretty, layered Chardonnay. All the elements simply fall into place in this effortless, super-distinctive wine.
