Since Dutton Ranch prunes their chardonnay vineyards first, they start their growing season early and were thankfully already a ways into set when the spring rains hit, so didn‰Ûªt see as dramatic an impact to yields as our other vineyards did this vintage. Even so, the crop was down a bit from the previous few vintages, giving the 2015 wines great intensity. At the same time, there‰Ûªs a particular focus to our whites this year that we love about our neighborhood. Our 2015 Dutton Ranch Chardonnay shows this liveliness right away in the nose, leading with zesty lime, Meyer lemon and tangerine, backed by more sultry notes of lemon oil and roasted nuts. The mouth is fresh with citrus, yet has a luscious creaminess at the same time. The initial lemon/lime hit is followed by rounder flavors of pear and green apple, along with a touch of apricot. The finish is brisk and refreshing, with a dash of toasty chestnut. The delicious chardonnay‰Ûªs bright/rich combination make it the perfect match or counterpoint to a wide range of foods, with shellfish in a cream sauce the ultimate echo of the wine‰Ûªs qualities.
