Wine Enthusiast Review
This is a tremendously bright expression from a famous site. It is exuberant in tangy lemon, crushed rock and sea spray, with lasting acidity that tapers it all. Offering a beautiful mix of texture and nuanced earthiness, this is a wholly memorable wine.
Wine Tasting Notes
The Durell Vineyard Chardonnay is the ultimate showcase of terroir. It is primarily composed of the old Wente clone, planted in various blocks throughout Durell. Each site expresses unique characteristics - one, on golden sandy soil atop a hillcrest, offers deep concentration, while another is situated at the base of the hillside on rocky soil which provides bright acidity and minerality. This vintage staple is a rich, luxurious wine, accented with notes of honey-lemon meringue, shortbread, and yellow apple, that is best described as a ray of sunshine in your glass.
