Russian River Valley

The Wine
This rendition of chardonnay is produced strictly from the Vineyard that surrounds our tasting room. The initial characters of this unoaked chardonnay are bright lime, lemon pith and green melon. A light straw color with lush texture lends for a full flavor wine that will pair well with simply prepared white fish with a splash of lemon.

The Vineyards
Dutton Ranch farms over eighty unique, separate vineyards located in the coolest area of the Russian River Valley, primarily in the sub-appellation known as the Green Valley. Vine Hill Ridge Vineyard which is located on Green Valley Road surrounding the Tasting Room was planted in 1980 using quadrilateral cane trellising. This wonderful plot of vines produces consistent fruit of high quality reflecting the Dutton Ranches.

The Winemaking
This 100% stainless steel chardonnay is a reflection of pure chardonnay from our vineyard site on Green Valley Road. There was no malolactic fermentation done after initial fermentation was complete mid September. The juice sat on the lees for twenty days prior to fining & filtering before bottling in January of 2008.
