Jax Vineyards 2015 Dutton Ranch Chardonnay
Have you heard of Dutton Ranch’s sustainably-farmed Goldridge (“moon dust”) soil? Here’s your chance to experience it! Goldridge, with its excellent drainage and low yields, is known for producing premium grapes and Chardonnay with intense fruit and citrusy notes. For the “terroir geeks”, it’s a fine sandy loam with tiny gold flecks – aka moon dust!
Note: If you’ve stored this wine in the refrigerator, please pull it out for 20-30 minutes and aerate before enjoying – you’ll get so much more out of the wine!
This wine dazzles with its shiny, transparent, pale golden color. Quite aromatic. Citrusy, oaky and orange vanilla creamcicle come to mind, with layers of crisp gold apple, wet stone and nutmeg as the wine opens. Medium in body, creamy, but not too heavy on the palate, this wine’s prominent acidity leading to a zesty, refreshing finish wrapped in citrus and caramelized oak. A showstopper bottle, each is hand waxed – a really nice gift bottle!
