Liqueur of minerals in addition to lemon oil and egg custard might well be a worthy descriptor for the 2003 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard. Light gold with a greenish hue this wine is a bit more evolved in color than the McCrea Vineyard but generous full-bodied and rich with uplifting vibrant acidity giving freshness and zest to all the component parts. This is a candidate for 4-5 years of aging although I suspect it is going to last longer.

Medium yellow. Warm gingery spices and nutty oak add interest to the pineapple aroma. Lush sweet and spicy if a bit youthfully subdued with very ripe notes of peach and nectarine. This comes across as less obviously ripe... Medium yellow. Warm gingery spices and nutty oak add interest to the pineapple aroma. Lush sweet and spicy if a bit youthfully subdued with very ripe notes of peach and nectarine. This comes across as less obviously ripe than the McCrea or Dutton Ranch bottlings-or is it simply more understated? There's lovely acidity and very good persistence. The crop level here was half of normal due to a poor set.
