Three Sticks Chardonnay Durell Vineyard 2016

1 unit available online.
Product description

The Durell Vineyard Chardonnay is always one of the most anticipated harvests of the season. The winery sources from 4 different blocks from various parts of the Durell property and each of them bring different aspects to the resulting wines in the glass. Some Wente from the sandier soils up in the higher and oldest part of the vineyard creates immense depth and concentration. The Mt. Eden clone from a block with heavier soils provides some lighter, more citrusy elements while the Dijon clone from the cobblestone soils down lower on the property bring minerality and slate to the picture. Together, these elements create a nuanced and elegant wine that offers the perfect balance of each of these blocks.

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast

From the producer’s estate vineyard, this wine offers flavors of white flowers, Meyer lemon, melon and mineral that mingle effortlessly on the medium-bodied palate. Beautifully layered and balanced, it lingers in tones of nutmeg, crushed rock and lemongrass

95 Points - Decanter

Terrific complexity and elegance with dominant notes of fresh apple, oyster shell, hazelnut, peach and a touch of wood smoke. Full bodied yet with impressive freshness and a stunning long finish.
