2015 DEHLINGER ESTATE CHARDONNAY
There is one winery that comes to mind in the Russian River Valley which epitomizes the region and models consistency, age-ability, and balance… Dehlinger. They helped pioneer high-quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir production in the Russian River Valley beginning with their first vintage in 1975. Their wines have uncanny age-worthiness, a profound sense of place and absolutely stunning balance. Their 2015 Chardonnay is a shining example of what their Estate is capable and offers a kaleidoscope of ripe orchard fruits, mineral-laced apples, lemon oil and crushed rock.
Their 2015 Chardonnay is crafted using traditional techniques, helping to preserve the flavors and elegance of the variety and they’ve been bottling their Chardonnays “Unfiltered” since the late 1990’s, in order to capture the full flavor potential and most pleasing texture possible. The wine spends around 12-15 months in barrel and is aged sur-lie, which contributes greatly to the depth and richness of this beautiful Chardonnay. If you’re searching for an iconic Russian River Valley Chardonnay that’s still realistically priced, don’t miss this one…

From Vinous, “The 2015 Chardonnay Estate is luscious and bold on the palate, with superb depth and tremendous textural resonance. Lemon confit, white flowers and orchard fruit notes abound. Rich and unctuous, with superb persistence, the 2015 has so much to offer. The Dehlinger Chardonnay is typically on the overt side of things. All of its signatures are amped in the 2015, a wine that reflects the intense, flamboyant side of the vintage.” 93 Points
