2016 Chardonnay (3 Bottle Set)
Dunstan, 2016 Chardonnay (3 Bottle Set)
The end of a 4+ year drought in California saw an early budbreak yet again in spring 2016. Warm summertime weather pushed ripening along beautifully. Another early harvest (August 22) yielded Chardonnay with depth, power, vibrant fruit notes and incredible freshness.
Ranch House Block:
The Durell vineyard "Ranch House" block includes 5 acres of old Wente Chardonnay that we dedicate to Dunstan. The small clusters show the classic "hens and chicks" morphology with small and medium berries bound together creating an intensely flavorful wine with gorgeous signature Durell minerality.
Our new 2016 vintage Chardonnay has no malolactic fermentation and was aged 15 months in 20% new French cooperage.
