2017 Durell Vineyard Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast

2017 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 a unique wine. The Hill block was planted in the 1990’s and gives very low yields of small clusters of berries. These small bunches provide extraordinary flavors, complexity and texture. The Barn block was planted in rocky soils of an old creek bed and provides minerality and fresh acidity to balance out the blend. Each block of our Old Wente clone Chardonnay was harvested at night and gently 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.
