DuMOL make some of the best and most sought-after Chardonnays from the Russian River Valley and California. Limited.

95 Points Wine Spectator: "The 2017 Chardonnay Wester Reach was barrel fermented and aged 12 months on the lees in 30% new oak. It has a mineral-driven nose of petrichor, honey, toasted almonds, Golden apple, white peach and notions of nectarine and hay. Light to medium-bodied, it's intensely fruited and packs in the savory layers and expressive honeyed notions, lifted by juicy acidity and finishing long, intense and focused. Lovely!"

94 Points Wine Enthusiast:
"This beautifully vibrant, fresh white is made from five vineyard sites, several of them estate, in addition to the Charles Heintz Vineyard in Occidental. Cool climate in nature and texture, it offers a whiff of matchstick and focused oak, with a lingering richness of honey, brioche and apple skin. Midpalate intensity evolves into a crisp, bright, stony finish."

93 Points James Suckling:
"Impressive complexity and smoothly integrated, lemon and white-peach aromas, giving an air of composed purity. The palate has a swathe of fresh, fleshy peaches and lemons. Nicely cut finish. Really svelte and focused. Drink or hold."

Winemaker Notes: The DuMol 2017 Wester Reach Chardonnay Russian River Valley has great lines: focused, driven, mineral-laden and pithy, with a level of cool-climate fruit intensity that is very rare. This level of quality and distinctive character is hard to achieve in a larger-production blended wine, but is a testament to our pedigreed vineyards, precise farming, twenty years’ experience, and patient, sensitive craftsmanship.
