The 2014 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch is a rather complex blend of multiple heritage clones from California, such as the Wente, Robert Young, Rued, the U.C. Davis Clone 4, and the Spring Mountain Clone. The wine offers up plenty of white peach, honeysuckle, full-bodied elegance, a touch of mango and almond paste. There are also notes of green apple skin. This beauty is about 40% new French oak and their second largest cuvee at 6,500 cases. Like the other wines, this went through 100% malolactic before being bottled unfiltered.
