Durell Vineyard shines in a cool vintage like 2018, when the grapes seem to pull the sunshine into themselves to keep warm. Sourced from two of the oldest blocks, and primarily the Old Wente clone, the lush, ripe flavor and distinctive minerality make this a wine of unmistakable depth and power. Wine Enthusiast calls it “a tremendously bright expression from a famous site,” and “a wholly memorable wine.” Accents of cool lime add to the aromas and flavors of honey, shortbread, and yellow apples in this glass of liquid luxury.
This is a tremendously bright expression from a famous site. It is exuberant in tangy lemon, crushed rock and sea spray, with lasting acidity that tapers it all. Offering a beautiful mix of texture and nuanced earthiness, this is a wholly memorable wine.
