  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    A flinty, minerally style, with crushed rock, wet stone, green apple and lemon-citrus notes that are tight and focused, ending with a tart citrus peel pithiness on the finish.

    Coming across like a Grand Cru from Chablis, the 2012 Chardonnay Stone Flat Vineyard displays loads of wet rocks, a touch of delicate honey, lemon blossom and assorted citrus oil notes. It is medium-bodied, fresh, lively and quite crisp and pure.

    The 2012 Chardonnay Stone Flat Vineyard emerges from a parcel right next to Durell, but the flavors are quite a bit brighter. Lemon oil, white flowers, pears and white pepper are all laced together in a very pretty, understated Chardonnay.
