Chardonnay Trout Gulch Vineyard, Kutch 2017
The 2017 Chardonnay Trout Gulch offers a striking combination of fruit intensity and the structure that makes this site so distinctive. Lemon peel, chalk, white flowers, mint are all laced together in a striking, vibrant Chardonnay loaded with character. The warmer growing season has fleshed out some of the more angular contours that so often mark wines from this Santa Cruz Mountains site.
|Score: 92/94||Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, January 2019|
Coming from a site in the Santa Cruz Mountains, the 2017 Chardonnay Trout Gulch Vineyard is one of the more mineral-driven wines in the lineup and shows a terrific citrus and caramelized lime character as well as lots of white flowers and salty, rocky notes. It’s clean and medium-bodied, with bright acidity and a great finish. 2021-2029
