2011 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
Chardonnay •Durell Vineyard
California: Sonoma County: Sonoma Coast
A bright pale golden hue, like a ray of soft morning sunlight.
Refined and elegant on the nose, with aromas of Meyer lemon, white peach, and slight green apple complemented by a subtle oaky spice. Also present are hints of white flower petal and vanilla bean.
Very Burgundian on the palate, with a more subtle and restrained flavor profile. Well balanced flavors of Meyer lemon, lime flower, Granny Smith apple, slight brioche, sweet vanilla, and lemon curd form a delicious and delicate interplay.
With a lovely richness on entry, this is an easy and approachable Chardonnay, perfect for sipping. The finish is highlighted by hints of citrus, white flower, and sweet vanilla.
This easy-drinker would be perfectly paired with crispy prosciutto-wrapped asparagus.
