2013 Durell Vineyard ChardonnayJoin To Purchase
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The 2013 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard shows plenty of stone fruits, orange marmalade and delicate apricot in a rich, full-bodied style. Drink it over the next 4-6 years.
The 2013 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard comes across as a bit more closed than the McCrea. It will be interesting to see if the Durrell gains a little more flesh over time. Today, it is one of the leaner wines in the range, although there is plenty of energy and brightness in the citrus and floral notes that are front and center. Of all the 2013 Chardonnays, the Durell is the least expressive relative to how it showed from tank prior to bottling.
