This wine is a diamond in the rough! It begins with a fresh aroma full of volume, honey, sweet white confection, floral bouquet and sparkling tropical notes. It has a showy, full body, good viscosity, bright white fruits and a plush center and tingly linger that both tastes and leaves you feeling fresh on the palate and wanting more! Hailing from the famed Mill Station Vineyard, managed by Dutton Ranch of Russian River Valley, this Chardonnay shows it all. A beautiful color, the volume is turned way up in the nose and the mouthfeel of sweet citrus and tropical fruit on the entry with firm acidity and richness in the midpalate leaves you wanting another taste. Aged for 11 months sur lies in French oak, stainless steel, and concrete, this is both an eclectic and playful statement in Chardonnay and a wine deserving vineyard designate status. This offering is ready to enjoy now and should age well from release to 2019 or longer if cellared well.
