WALT "Dutton Ranch"
Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
90 points "Rich and creamy, with layers of ripe fig, honeydew melon, creamy oak and subtle earth notes that are pure, focused and persistent.
Drink now through 2018." —J.L., Wine Spectator
The 2010 WALT “Dutton Ranch” Chardonnay displays a strawgreenish hue. Effusive aromas of ripe Pink Lady apple skins, papaya, white peach and nutmeg are symphonious and inviting. The palate is deep and rich, intense and lengthy, showcasing tropical fruits and lingering brown spice. We did not fine nor filter this wine, ensuring all of its delicious, nuanced character remain fully proclaimed.
