Robert Parker 95 Points: “The 2013 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard saw 30% new oak but again no malolactic fermentation. This is a brilliant Chardonnay with full-bodied intensity, plenty of minerality, some subtle tropical fruits such as tangerine and mango, but more quince, white currants and citrus oil. It has the ability to last 5-7 years, if not longer.”

 

The Wine:  The wine over delivers on both nose and palate.  This small production single vineyard “Durrell” Chardonnay delivers a laser beam of aromatics and flavors. On the nose hints of green apple, tropical fruit that is followed on the lush palate by citrus, honeydew, mango and a touch of butter scotch and a whiff of citurs. Offering great depth and velocity, the wine finishes long with a hint of minerality.
