Tasting notes:
'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.' – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 92-94/100

‘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. Drink 2021-2029.’ – Jeb Dunnuck, 93/100

Alc: 12.5%

About Kutch Wines:
Kutch Wines, located in California, was started by Jamie Kutch in 2005. Jamie has become known to push the boundaries for Pinot Noir and Decanter describes Kutch Wines as ‘one of the top producers of elegant, new-style California Pinot Noir.’ Kutch Wines follow a minimalist philosophy in order to provide the purest expression of a wine from a particular place and time. All punch-downs are done by foot and upon completion of fermentation, the wine is gravity-flowed into French oak barrels, where they remain unmoved while aging on the fine lees.
