Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay from Dutton Goldfield is very very good! It opens with a fragrant and attractive pineapple and apple bouquet with notes of vanilla oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is an oak infused apple and pear with notes of vanilla oak. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Chard would pair very well with pasta carbonara. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: 2013 Rued Chardonnay comes through once again with everything we love about this vineyard and the wine: The nose leads with citrus blossoms, lively lemon oil, guava and mango. There's an energy to the aromatics, along with a definite sense of creaminess. The mouth is lush with lemon cream pie flavors and Rued's signature minerality, echoing that same intriguing interplay of freshness and decadence. The wine leaves you with a kiss of toasty creme brulee on the finish. Rued always pairs beautifully with luxurious creamy dishes or any kind of shellfish, and it's also wonderful with aged cheeses.
