Wine Review: This straw-colored Chardonnay from Three Sticks is very good. It opens with a lemon and honeydew melon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with plus acidity. The flavor profile is light lemon and mineral blend with notes of gentle grapefruit, quince and saline. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This Chard would pair well with lemon garlic butter scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Origin does not see any oak as we strive to achieve Durell's purest expression of Chardonnay. We ferment the wine in concrete eggs, amphoras and stainless-steel barrels. It is aged sur lie to maintain creaminess and texture, while the lack of oak influence showcases the purity of Durell. The 2018 vintage opens with fresh pineapple on the nose, followed by a touch of slate and minerality on the palate. The acid is in perfect balance, bringing life to the glass, culminating in a wine with finesse and freshness.
