The 2015 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard opens with alluring lemon curd, green guava and ripe apricot notes with suggestions of allspice, coriander seed, almond croissant and orange blossom. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a seductive oiliness to the texture with loads of rich tropical fruit layers generously accented with baking spice notions, finishing very long. (LPB)
From its deep and oh-so-generous aromas to its concentrated, multi-faceted flavors, this expressive working impresses as being as polished and well-crafted as it is unrelentingly rich. It manages to be both juicy and wonderfully complex with a full measure of optimally ripened fruit neatly matched to its plentiful complement of sweet oak and lees, and, if structured to keep and conveying a great sense of reserve, it is nonetheless a decidedly showy wine in its youth. If given the choice, we would opt to wait for a couple of years before pulling its cork, but neither would we be averse to drinking it tonight alongside the likes of the richest salmon, swordfish or lobster recipes.
Breadth, power and richness are the signatures in the 2015 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard. The 2015 has really come together nicely over the last year. Creamy and generous, with terrific resonance, the Durell will appeal most to readers who like larger Chardonnays. Naturally forming small clusters and small berries in these diseased vines give the Durell much of its distinctive personality. (AG)
