2016 Miura, Chardonnay, Napa Valley

Miura (myu rä) n. 1. Derived from Don Eduardo Miura, the most famous breeder of Spanish fighting bulls; for the Spanish, Miura is a legendary name signifying nobility, boldness and power.

Miura is our program that focuses on what I feel are the best regions in California for the growing of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Within each of those regions I have selected the vineyards that best exemplify that area stylistically and qualitatively.

The Vineyard

After years of pestering Lee Hudson we finally secured some of his magnificent Chardonnay fruit from his vineyard in the Carneros region of Napa Valley. The Hudson Vineyard is widely acknowledged to be amongst the top three Chardonnay vineyards in California.

The 2016

Our first Chardonnay since 2009 and it could not have pleased us more! Rich, exuberant pear, apple and buttery notes that linger on the palate while still being crisp and fresh.
