From Andrew Murray:
“This is a very personal project for me. I feel like these wines have been works-in-progress for a decade or more, only finally jumping from my imagination and into the bottle just this year. These new releases rank amongst the smallest production wines that I have ever released. They are all Estate Grown and crafted with the utmost care and precision. They truly represent the best that we can do here, on the Curtis Estate in the heart of Los Olivos and at the Gravel Pit Estate in Santa Maria. No expense was spared in the farming or the crafting of these stunning wines. In the vineyard, we cherry-picked the best blocks, restricted yields, and used every trick up our sleeves with the singular goal of harvesting the very best fruit that we can grow. In the winery, we took our winemaking efforts to the next level…we took it to 11. We double-sorted the grapes to ensure only the best looking berries made it into our fermenters. We aged the wines exclusively in French Oak for 18 months to ensure immense pleasure upon release. The wines are rich and decadent, yet remarkably balanced, pure, and varietally correct. They speak softly of their variety and their origins. They shout, “Drink Me!”
These wines exemplify the Natural, Locavore and Farm-To-Bottle movements. They are grown in Los Olivos, Hand-Crafted in Los Olivos, and sold in Los Olivos by a family that has been here for over 25 years.
We invite you taste our wines…
We have decided to dedicate our Downtown Los Olivos tasting room exclusively to these wines. Andrew Murray Vineyards Club Members are offered complimentary tastings in DTLO as a member perk. While you are there, you can browse our updated collection of books and bar accessories, including some of my favorite shakers, shrubs, mixes, and bitters, while listening to vintage vinyl tunes. We look forward to seeing you soon!
