Carneros Hills Winery "Chardenet" Durrell Vineyard
Dating back to its first use in 1849, "Chardenet" was the original spelling for the Chardonnay grape in France. Carneros Hills Winery produces limited amounts of vineyard designated wines under this name: one from the Durell Vineyard and one from Coteau Blanc, which is comprised of several choice blocks located within the Carneros Hills Vineyard.
Aromas of yellow peach, poached pear, lemon peel, beeswax, and lanolin intertwine on the nose. On the palate, rich white plum, g, and dried ginger flavors lead into a powerfully structured, riverstone-inflected texture that persists for minutes.
