The 2011 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch is a 5,000-case cuvee which includes fruit from relatively old vine

Rating
2011: 90 Points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch is a 5,000-case cuvee which includes fruit from relatively old vines (25% of the cuvee is from Chardonnay planted in 1969). This wine displays crisp acidity, exotic mango and pineapple notes with some caramelized citrus. It is medium to full-bodied and outstanding even in this vintage."


Wine maker notes
With a long, cool summer that promoted even ripening and ample hangtime, the 2010 growing season proved excellent for Burgundian varietals. In broad strokes, there is beautiful freshness to this wine, with clearly delineated vineyard character. At the same time, the modest crop size in 2010 has contributed to amazing concentration, spotlighting notes of spiced tropical peach, pear, honeydew, clove and narcissus. The mid-palate is vibrant and bright, combining delicate, mouthwatering acidity with rich fruit, all surrounded by subtle, oak-inspired notes of cinnamon, spiced toffee and roasted almonds.
