2015 Durell Vineyard ChardonnayJoin To Purchase
Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
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.
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.
