2013 DEHLINGER “ESTATE” CHARDONNAY, RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY

$40.00 $36.00 $36.00

Perfectly articulating the best of the Russian River Valley, Tom Dehlinger’s 2013 Estate Chardonnay offers a kaleidoscope of brilliant pineapple, poached pear, lemon oil and crushed rock.  A pioneer in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, Dehlinger’s first vintage was 1975 and they’ve continually impressed with their distinct, delineated wines that they’ve managed to keep very realistically priced over the years.  I believe they should be included in the same conversation as other elite California Chardonnay and Pinot Noir producers, Kistler, Rochioli and DuMOL.

Meriting a stellar 93 Point score from Robert Parker, the 2013 administers a sense of weightless purity that’s simply enchanting, giving way to a crescendo of exotic fruits, vibrant acidity and remarkable length.  Their unfiltered, Estate Chardonnay spends between 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, you won’t want to miss this one…

Description

2013 DEHLINGER “ESTATE” CHARDONNAY, RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “My tasting at the winery in January started with their beautiful Chardonnay, the 2013 Chardonnay Estate, which was fermented with indigenous yeast. The new oak is relatively restrained, and the wine offers plenty of old Wente, the classic hallmark of white peach, but in this case, backed up with crushed rock and white pebble notes suggesting minerality. The wine has tremendous intensity, full-bodied ripeness, but great acidity and a style that seems to cut a personality between a steely Chablis and a leaner Southern white Burgundy. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. 93 Points
