2012 Auteur Durell Vineyard Sonoma County Chardonnay 750ml

The polarity of the copious rich citrus fruit and nectar tones paired with the mineral, flint and natural acidity makes this one of our most adored wines, from one of Sonoma's most revered vineyards. Reflective of the ancient riverbeds and rich rocky volcanic-based soils found at Durell, along with the distinguishing character of the Old Wente clone – naturally low yielding and small tight clusters - produce a wine with stunning depth, lively natural acidity, complete with an tremendous finish.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 94

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2012 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard was made from the Old Wente clone, and spent time in 33% new oak. It reveals lots of poached pear, honeysuckle, and caramelized citrus characteristics, ripe acidity, medium to full body, and beautiful density as well as richness. The most opulent and lavishly constructed of these four Chardonnays, it should drink well for 5-6 years.
