Tasting Notes

Ripe, exotic tropical fruits and perfumed hibiscus aromas lead the way in this vintage of Durell Chardonnay, evolving into preserved lemon and golden apple notes on the full body, balanced by the wine's signature seashell minerality. A delicate cinnamon-flavored chantilly character drives through a lingering finish, accented by nutmeg and clove, altogether reminiscent of a salted caramel apple. Drinking beautifully now with promise to benefit from a few more years in the cellar.
