Patz & Hall Dutton Ranch Chardonnay 2017
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
|Brand||Patz & Hall|
The 2017 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch aged on the lees in 35% new oak with weekly bâtonnage. It reluctantly opens to apple pie, toast, apricot, roasted almonds and smoky reduction. It's medium-bodied, silky and more expressive in the mouth with honeyed, savory notions framing the intense fruits, enlivened by juicy acidity and finishing long and textured. This will benefit from another year in bottle.
This is a tightly wound and intense wine that shows its youth, a study in concentrated Gravenstein apple, salt and stone. A floral underbelly of apple and orange blossom brightens the palate and grippy structure. Let this wine open slowly in the glass.
Crunchy, with smoky nuances to the apple, green pear and ripe citrus flavors. Spicy finish. Drink now. 9,445 cases made.
