2010 Robert Craig Durrell Vineyard Chardonnay$49.95 -- 2010 Robert Craig Durrell Vineyard Chardonnay
White peach and pear, infused with apple blossom, honeysuckle and orange peel. Refreshing citrus, white nectarine, blood orange and floral notes. Clean, firm and crisp finish enlivened by a mouth-filling minerality. A finesse-driven Chardonnay fresh and bright on the palate, with the structure for aging.
Durell Vineyard has become synonymous with “exceptional Chardonnay”, as grapes from this renowned Sonoma Valley producer are now the source of the region’s most highly acclaimed Chardonnays. Our small allocation of fruit comes from the choice Sand Hill Block. For the 2010 vintage, select lots were fermented using native (natural) yeast and the wine was left on the lees to add complexity and finesse. Aging was in neutral French oak for texture and richness, new French oak for a touch of spice, and stainless steel to enhance the fruit component. Winery Notes
