Patz & Hall Dutton Ranch Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
|Brand||Patz & Hall|
The 2016 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch offers more honeyed citrus, orchard fruits, pineapple, and floral notes, with a gorgeous minerality developing with time in the glass. Medium-bodied, vibrant and fresh, with good acidity and building richness, it's classic all the way and a thrilling Chardonnay from this estate.
This is a rich, layered wine offering sizable notions of oak within a powerful backdrop of Meyer lemon, melon and apple. It has dense concentration and richness that finds balance in underlying acidity and a mineral tease of crushed rock.
Densely packed, with flavors of Fuji apple, pear tart and dried peach swathed in spicy overtones. Sage honey hints show on the creamy finish. Drink now through 2022. 10,051 cases made.
