2016 Durell Vineyard Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast

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 of juice. The wine is lively and exotic with rich flavors, complexity and smooth texture. We fermented in French oak barrels to produce an expansive wine that illustrates the balance and exceptional character of the vintage. Lisa Perrotti-Brown of Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate writes that the wine has “a lovely suggestion of silkiness to the texture and long finish with spicy notions coming through.”
