2021 Dutton Goldfield Dutton Ranch Russian River Valley Chardonnay

SKU #5063414
Winery Notes- The great combination of bright and lush comes through right away in the nose, which leads with a bouquet of white spring flowers surrounding the core of lemon zest. Pear, green apple, and kiwi provide supporting fruit notes. In the mouth, the crisp and opulent theme continues, with lemon curd and creamy pear lifted with a lime zest finish. A little oyster shell minerality on the finish reminds you of the Sonoma Coast just to the west, and also of delicious shellfish pairings. Try it with our local Dungeness crab, Tomales Bay oysters Rockefeller, or a creamy clam chowder. Valley Ford’s Estero Gold Reserve cheese is a great match, as is a cave-aged gruyere.
WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: This elegant wine from Dan Goldfield smells subtle and spicy, tastes creamy and complex and feels bracing and light in texture. The harmony among fresh, crisp apples and pears, light toast and butter nuances and restrained oak toastiness is superb.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Offers a polished, sophisticated mix of pineapple, tangerine and ripe, salted melon flavors, lingering on the long, lush finish with notes of apple pastry and a drizzle of caramel. Drink now through 2034. 2,330 cases made.
