2019 Kistler Chardonnay Durell Vineyards

Vintage : 2019

Region : Sonoma Coast

Country : USA

Winemaker Notes

Pale yellow. Piercing lifted scents of ripe orchard fruits and floral nuances with its classic marine aromatic base layers framing the higher pitched tones. Conveys a sense of weight without heaviness. Supportive and integrated natural acids buoy the forward presence of the wine. Finishes with great length, depth and persistence with a quiet verve. A compelling example of Durell.

Showing a more mineral-laced, focused style than normal, as this cuvée is normally one of the richer wines in the lineup, the 2019 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard has classic Sonoma Coast minerality and salinity as well as white peach, pear, and white flower aromas and flavors. It has a touch of reductive, matchstick-like character, good mid-palate density, and a medium-bodied, fresh, focused style that will evolve for 8-10 years.

96 Antonio Galloni

The 2019 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard offers a compelling interplay of floral and mineral notes. Vibrant and beautifully focused, the 2019 is a terrific example of this Sonoma site. There is translucency that is beguiling. Sage, mint, chamomile and anise linger on the dense, mineral close. Kistler Hyde/Wente clone Chardonnay on 3309 rootstock yields naturally small berries and a potent, heady wine. This is a fabulous expression of Durell.
