Description

This wine is smooth, luscious and eminently drinkable!

"Bright, fresh and vivacious, this bottling from the historic vineyard offers white flowers, sea salt, lemons and buttered white peaches on the nose. Apple flesh and lime rind sizzles into the citrus-driven palate, where a touch of lemon verbena adds complexity to this straightforward and delicious wine." ~ Wine Enthusiast 

“Fess Parker's 2014 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard shows just how compelling this vintage can be for Chardonnay. Beautifully layered and translucent in the glass, the 2014 possesses striking nuance and tons of class. Lemon confit, almond, white flowers and mint are some of the signatures, but it is the wine's silkiness that stands out most. This is another delicious wine from Fess Parker. The 40% new oak is nicely integrated for such a young wine.” ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
