Three Sticks Chardonnay Durell Vineyard 2018
Three Sticks Wines is a boutique, family-owned winery led by veteran winemaker Bob Cabral. Cabral's commitment to crafting small-lot, artisanal wines from exceptional Sonoma Coast vineyards. Founded in 2002, the winery is named for owner William S. Price III's surfing nickname, "Billy Three Sticks," assigned to him in his youth as reference to the Roman numeral that follows his name. Three Sticks has a down to earth approach to growing and winemaking, they believe in table fellowship as the power of wine to bring people together.
The Durell Vineyard Chardonnay is the ultimate showcase of terroir. It is primarily composed of the old Wente clone, planted in various blocks throughout Durell. Each site expresses unique characteristics, one, on golden sandy soil atop a hillcrest, offers deep concentration, while another is situated at the base of the hillside on rocky soil which provides bright acidity and minerality. This 2018 staple is a rich, luxurious wine, accented with notes of honey-lemon meringue, shortbread, and yellow apple, that is best described as a ray of sunshine in your glass.

This is a tremendously bright expression from a famous site. It is exuberant in tangy lemon, crushed rock and sea spray, with lasting acidity that tapers it all. Offering a beautiful mix of texture and nuanced earthiness, this is a wholly memorable wine.
