Dehlinger Winery is located in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County and was founded in 1975 by Tom and Carole Dehlinger. Eva Dehlinger took over winemaking duties in 2007. Known for their Pinot Noir, Dehlinger also makes Chardonnay, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah.
Gold in color. 14.2% ABV. Gorgeous nose of tropical fruits, Meyer Lemon and vanilla bean. Full bodied with perfect acidity. Super lush and rich. Pear, pineapple, hazelnuts and lemon oil on the palate. Nice length on the finish. Absolutely delicious Chardonnay that I could drink all Spring and Summer. This will age well. Best over the next 2-4 years.
My rating: 93 points.
Dehlinger Winery has a great reputation among wine connoisseurs. Wine writers have consistently given strong reviews while praising the winery for its uniqueness, quality, consistency and value. About 75% of their wine is sold via the mailing list. Amazing wines that are well worth the search.
