Impressive complexity and powerful aromas of ripe pears and peaches here. Lots of spice, grilled almonds and clotted cream, too. The palate has a smooth delivery of supple, creamy pears and peaches, brulee custard and plenty of spiced-orange sponge cake to close. Drink or hold.
The 2017 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard, aged 15 months in 30% new French oak, has scents of toast, citrus peel, wet stone and honey-drizzled hazelnuts with a core of white peaches and baked apples plus a lacy veil of sweet spices. In the mouth, it’s medium-bodied and silky, with slowly expanding, honey-laced flavors on the long, juicy finish. Yum! (EB)
From a great site in the Sonoma Coast that sits on an old riverbed, the 2017 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard spent 15 months mostly in used barrels (30% new). It has a slightly deep gold hue as well as a richer, fuller, more opulent style as well ample baked apples, brioche, toasted bread, and caramelized notes. This is a rich, powerful Chardonnay that’s not as aromatic as the Alana Vineyard, yet packs more muscle on the palate. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years.
Full-bodied, powerful and rich, with concentrated flavors of baked apple, dried pear and custard, backed by bright acidity. Pastry and buttery notes linger on the creamy finish, with some savory hints. Drink now through 2024.
