Notes From the Winemaker:
Durell Vineyard has been the source behind some of the most sought-after Chardonnay wines, and we feel fortunate to work with two outstanding vineyard blocks that combine to make something special. Our 100% Old Wente clone Chardonnay was harvested at night and pressed to extract only the highest quality juice.

We fermented in French oak barrels to produce an expansive wine that illustrates the balance and exceptional character of the vintage. Rusty Gaffney of PinotFile writes that the wine is, "Nicely perfumed with aromas of lemon, apple, spice, vanilla creme, brioche and nuts. The palate is infused with citrus, but also pear and apple flavors with hint of oak. A solid wine that is not too rich or lean, with a smooth but not creamy mouthfeel and some finishing verve."

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard has a gregarious, tropical fruit-scented nose of pineapple, green mango and guava with underlying brioche, praline and acacia honey hints. Medium-bodied with a nice suggestion of phenolic texture to offset the creaminess, the palate is intensely laden with tropical fruit and savory flavors, finishing long and lively." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Feb 2017)

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Hefty and concentrated in flavor, with a thick layered texture, this wine is made from two blocks of the famous vineyard. Mango, apple skin and substantial background oak give it a tension between sugar and spice." (2017)
