"Gorgeously ripe and opulent, the wine shows grilled peach, mango, vanillin oak, butterscotch and popcorn aromas on the nose, leading to a sumptuous palate offering fabulous fruit power together with seductive oak infusion, finishing long and lavish. At its best: now to 2025" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2021

"Excellently presented aromas of butter, nectarine, warm almond and white flower are delicate but expressive on the nose of this bottling. An immediate acidity races through the palate, lifting the toasty and buttery elements while pairing smartly against the ripe citrus and white flower elements" Matt Kettman, Wine Enthusiast, Dec 2021

This Chardonnay has a beautiful, pale golden hue with tropical aromas of pineapple that mingle with toasted oak and hints of ripe apricot, creme brûlée and pear. The delicate flavours of crème brûlée in this white wine give way to lovely notes of key lime, white peach, and marshmallow in a medium-bodied mouthfeel.

The 2019 Monterey growing season had cool and moderate weather return to Monterey County and made the grape harvest more aligned with a typical coastal wine growing timeline. Mild temperatures, overnight fog and afternoon winds provided extra hang-time desired for great phenolic development which this wine region typically enjoys. With no real significant heat spikes, the Chardonnay grapes were allowed to slowly ripen and create intense fruit flavors. This was a harvest of excellent quality.

Just over 80% of this Chardonnay comes from our San Bernabe Vineyard which has a range of soils from ancient aeolian sand dunes to calcareous soils. These sandy soils are free draining, allowing the grape vines to develop deep root systems developing healthier vines. The climate is much warmer during the day and cools down in the afternoon as the prevailing afternoon winds funnel down from the Monterey Bay allowing for the development of more tropical characters such as pineapple, guava, and stone fruit. The remainder of the white wine blend comes from Santa Lucia highlands which is cooler than our San Bernabe Vineyards, providing more citrusy characters such as orange and grapefruit. It is a long narrow strip that runs down east south of the Santa Lucia Highlands Foothill with dense early fog, and breeze that burns off as the sun rises. Only our best blocks with specific grape clones, mostly Dijon, made it to the finished wine. From  our  San  Bernabe  Vineyard  blocks  43B  (clone  17),  block  41B  (Clone  95,  76),  block  218A  with  more  calcareous soils that add minerality (Clone 4, 95) were selected for the final wine blend. From our Santa Lucia Highlands vineyard blocks 1BS, 1BN, and 1AS with predominately clone 4 and 95 were selected for this fine Chardonnay.

Veteran winemaker, James Ewart, oversees the team and the small-lot winery built in the vineyard. We picked our blocks when the fruit was fully ripe, and each was kept separate, and all were 100% barrel fermented. ~45 % new oak was used for primary and secondary fermentation. After nine months of aging the wine was racked and put back into oak barrels (predominantly  French  oak) where it spent another five months before final blending.

This wine was aged for ~fourteen months in predominantly French barrels creating nice weight on the palate. The Damy Vosges long-toast barrels gives the wine nice length with slight toasty notes. The Cadus barrels gives the wine nice  vanilla  sweetness  and  depth.  About  45%  were  new  oak  barrels  and  the  remainder  of  the  wine  was  barrel  fermented in 1+ years seasoned barrels so the fruit aromas were not overwhelmed by new oak.

Named for the golden hills of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range that frames our family-owned San Bernabe Vineyard in Monterey, Diora is inspired from “d’Or,” the French phrase meaning “golden” and bestowed on beautiful, sun-filled regions. No effort has been spared along Diora’s 30-year journey from vineyard-to-bottle. The result is an expressive Chardonnay overflowing with flavor, depth and personality and a devotion to indulgence.
