2014 Durell Vineyard ChardonnayJoin To Purchase
Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
The 2014 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard has a relatively subdued/savory nose of baking bread and yeast extract over a core of grapefruit, beeswax and crushed stones. Full-bodied, there is a lot of power and layers on the palate with a wicked backbone of acid cutting through the creamy texture and loads of minerals on the finish.
The 2014 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard offers a compelling interplay of rich fruit, phenolics and brightness, which gives it lovely completeness. Apricot, baked apple, chamomile and a kiss of French oak add to the wine's creamy, inviting personality. All the elements fall into place effortlessly.
