2015 Murmur Vineyard Chardonnay

42.00

Murmur vineyard is located in one of the my favorite regions of the Santa Maria Valley. Beautifully situated looking due west, this special block of Chardonnay is planted in almost pure sand, extinct sand dunes created a long time ago by strong coastal winds. This site is a perfect location for Chardonnay, and year in and year out, always retains wonderful acidity.

The 2015 Chardonnay from MurmurVineyard is plush, distinguished and viscous on it’s long textured finish. Apricot, orange peel, and tropical notes mixed with white flowers fan out in the glass and on the palate. This is clearly an extraverted Chardonnay, but all the elements are very nicely balanced within the bold style of the vintage. Vinous and Robert Parker 92 Points.
