Three Sticks Durell Vineyard Chardonnay 2013
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Valley|
Rich and expansive, with bold flavors of ripe pear, fig and honeydew coating the palate, showing touches of citrus and citrus blossom. Long and clean on the finish. Drink now. 713 cases made.
This release comes from the producer's own Durell Vineyard, specifically two blocks consistently used for this wine. Powerful ripeness and showy fruit rise on the nose and palate first, with an explosion of coconut water and burly oak. The wine was given 15 months in French oak, half of it new. Almonds, oranges and lemon rind combine before a dry finish. Drink now through 2021.
