2019 Bien Nacido Chardonnay
"Chalky aromas of wet earth and lime pith show on the nose of this single-vineyard expression, Seared orange and wet gravel show on the sip, with a lemon-pith acidity leading through the crushed stone minerality." ~ Wine Enthusiast
"Very fresh and sleek, with sea salt accents to the mineral and crisp green apple flavors. The powerfully structured and zesty finish shows hints of dried savory herbs. Drink now through 2025." ~ Wine Spectator
Our single vineyard and small lot releases enable us to deliver some of our finest expressions of Chardonnay by concentrating on specific vineyards, clonal selections or techniques. We have worked with fruit from this historically famous vineyard since 1990; the results have been fabulous!
This chardonnay is generous in texture but balanced by bright acidity. You will find aromas of pear, baked pineapple and graham cracker on the nose. The palate is expansive yet focused with forward tropical fruit flavors backed by attractive mineral and vanilla notes adding complexity. Enjoy!
