The grapes for this wine were sourced in Russian River Valley from the Mill Station Vineyard in Green Valley. Back in the 1970’s, Martin Ray was one of the first wineries to highlight the stellar Dutton Ranch fruit in their bottlings, and we continue this long term partnership today. Mill Station possesses the rare combination of excellent soil, old vines and ideal climate to consistently produce Chardonnay with finesse, and farmed by one of the most meticulous growers in the region.
This delicious Chardonnay exudes beautiful notes of key lime, mandarin, vanilla crème custard and aromatic jasmine, on a foundation of fresh Granny Smith apple, subtle wildflower honey and vanilla with hints of lemongrass. Well-integrated French oak and balanced acidity leaves the mouthfeel satiny and generous with honed edges.
