Three Sticks Chardonnay “Durell Vineyard” 2016 Sonoma Coast, California
This is a big style of Chardonnay, but it’s not overdone. There’s opulent fruit and mouthfeel but there’s also restraint in the finish supported by good tannin and acidity. This wine has amazing polish and pedigree, Bill Price, the owner, owns Durell Vineyard, is in partnership with Steve Kistler of Kistler Vineyards and the winemaking team was previously at Williams Selyem. That’s some of the best company you can have for making Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This is truly a special bottle of wine.
Pair this Chardonnay with Fried Chicken, steamed crab with herb butter or pasta with cream sauce.
