Pale straw in color, with intriguing aromatics of grilled lemon, honeysuckle and pear emerging up front. On the palate, notes of fresh ginger, kumquat and dried straw mingle with weightier impressions of sourdough toast, caramel and roasted marshmallow. The mouthfeel is velvety, with a touch of oiliness on the mid-palate along with an energetic streak of acidity that anchors a voluptuous and polished finish.

Murmur Vineyard in Santa Maria is at the confluence of sun, snow, stream and sea. Planted in 2008 on south-facing sandy slopes, the vineyard is just 12 miles from the Pacific Coast. 25 degree diurnal shifts, snow dustings, summer sun, bitter winds, and dense fog are commonplace. The extremity of the climate creates fruit of uncommon concentration and uniform ripeness. The Rabble Chardonnay 2015 features a bright and floral nose with tangerine peel, white peach, jasmine flowers lemon oil and pastry. Lush and round it wraps around the palate with bursts of kiwi, passion fruit, and underlined lemon pith. The finish is juicy with subtle minerality, clean ripe citrus and wet stone.

The 2016 vintage officially was the last of the drought vintages that began in 2012. While they were all marked by long hot summers and early harvests, both ’15 and ’16 featured lower yields than the preceding years. The upside to low moderate yields is that the grapes that were there picked up added levels of intensity and depth. This vintage was sourced from a variety of vineyards in the Sonoma Coast. These vineyards tended to deliver fully developed flavors at relatively high natural acidity, giving remarkable length and verve. This wine leans towards orchard fruit showing both apple and pear but also hints of tropical fruits and vanilla bean. In the mouth the wine is moderate weight but packs extraordinary depth of flavor, echoing the aroma with fuji apple, meyer lemon, sage and vanilla panna cotta. The finish is all energy with mouthwatering citrus notes.
