Sourced from the breathtaking Murmur Vineyard of Santa Maria Valley. In view of the Pacific coastline, Pismo’s sea breeze blesses the grapes optimally, resulting in beautiful acidities, bright fruit and an inherent balance. Rob Murray has artfully planted this Robert Young Clone of Chardonnay in the Solomon Hills, which we believe to be one of California’s premier locations for Chardonnay. The cool climate results in low crop yields producing grapes with concentrated flavors and lively minerality. Entirely fermented and aged in all French oak barrels. Mattina Fiore’s limited production and remarkable flavor profile inspired us to hand wax every single bottle.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our Chardonnay is beautifully balanced with a floral perfume of honeysuckle essence and inviting notes of green apple, peach, persimmon cookies and a hint of pineapple. The mouth feel has a touch of viscosity on the palate with a long lingering finish of toasted hazelnuts and Madagascar vanilla bean. This large, structured, yet plush Chardonnay should be enjoyed over the next 3 to 6 years.
