($53) Bright, pale yellow. Stone fruits, musky lees, cinnamon and minerals on the nose, all lifted by a note of menthol. Lush and strong in extract but with a light touch, offering fresh, rather cool flavors of lemon and stone. At once dense and lively. Finishes dry in a positive way, with sneaky length.

The sensational 2006 Tor Chardonnay Durell Vineyard offers up scents of lychee nuts, white peaches, white currants, honeysuckle, tropical fruits, and background toasty oak, all buttressed by zesty acidity. In addition to terrific fruit presence, it provides fine underlying minerality.

About This Producer


Former Beringer Executive Tor Kenward launched his brand in the early 2000s and soon tapped Jeff Ames, the German-born, Memphis-raised protege of Thomas Brown to be his winemaker. Concentrating on red Rhone varieties (bottled under his Rock label) as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay (under TOR) from single vineyard sites, the wines have swiftly gained critically high acclaim. Production for any one wine rarely exceeds 200 cases.
