2016 Kistler "Durell Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

SKU #1388274 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Sensational notes of apple blossom, white flowers, and tart pineapple emerge from the 2016 Chardonnay Durrell. It’s medium-bodied, fresh and lively, with an incredible sense of balance and purity. As with all these releases from Kistler, it’s a complete, layered, age-worthy effort that needs short-term cellaring. Inner quote mark (6/2018)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Slightly closed at this youthful stage, the 2016 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard slowly unfurls to reveal pineapple, pink grapefruit and lemon curd scents with underlying notions of baking bread, chopped almonds, chalk dust and allspice. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is beautifully poised between intense tropical and citrus flavors and fantastic tension, featuring a long, silken-textured finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard offers lovely brightness and a distinctly citrus-driven and floral profile to match its airy, weightless personality. A wine of total grace and finesse, the Durell is positively brilliant and refined today. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich, powerful and well-cut flavors of white cherry, Asian pear and Key lime crackle with fresh acidity. The minerally finish delivers sea salt and savory spice notes. (KM) Inner quote mark (7/2019)
