2015 MATIAS ROSELLA’S VINEYARD CHARDONNAY

$55.00

The best Chardonnays are grown in cooler climates where the lower temperatures help maintain crisp acidity and produce more focused wines.  One of the greatest climatic examples is the Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey County, where the cool maritime air gives the grapes what they need to reach their highest potential.  One of the world’s largest underwater canyons spanning 300 cubic miles lies just offshore and exerts a powerful maritime influence of fog and winds which funnel through the wine growing region and help keep the grapes cool.  That, combined with plenty of sunshine, alluvial soils and multi-generations of grape farmers, make this one of the best places to look for high-quality Chardonnay.

Created from the iconic Rosella’s vineyard which was planted by Gary Franscioni who’s one of California’s most distinguished growers.  Wineries like Roar, Kosta Browne and Loring all make single vineyard wines from this site, and Matias perfectly articulates the best qualities of the vineyard.
