Ode to Dutch Bill
For the third successive vintage in a row, we are very pleased to be showing the delightfully approachable 2009 Dutch Bill Creek Russian River Valley Chardonnay.
With a fresh, bright nose and bright, fresh flavors on the palate, this wine delivers a delightful drinking experience - at a very budget-friendly price.
This is a food friendly wine that encompasses a range of flavors and aromas. There is an earthiness and a brightness that give the wine great balance.
Enjoy well-chilled, but for a smoother and more flavorful experience, allow the wine to warm just slightly in the glass before enjoying.
Medium golden hues with a heavy-looking and viscous surface.
Clover honey and mixed citrus meld with acacia petals, dried apricot, candied walnut and berry bramble (without the berries).
Citrus, lemon curd, hazelnut, apricot, nectarine and flinty minerals.
Starts bold and then tails off slowly. Citrus persists at the edges of the palate for a very long time. At the very end, flint and white pepper persist the longest.
Barbequed salmon with a lemon mignonette sauce.
