Having sold out at Three Sticks, we feel fortunate to offer this unoaked Origin Chardonnay to Bounty Hunter clients. Aged in concrete and stainless steel, the fruit holds its own in this bright, expressive wine with a persistent freshness and lingering, stony mineral bite. This Durell Chardonnay is one to cherish, for those lucky enough to score a bottle.
The 2017 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard, aged 15 months in 30% new French oak, has scents of toast, citrus peel, wet stone and honey-drizzled hazelnuts with a core of white peaches and baked apples plus a lacy veil of sweet spices. In the mouth, it’s medium-bodied and silky, with slowly expanding, honey-laced flavors on the long, juicy finish. Yum!
