Foxen Bien Nacido Vineyard Block UU Chardonnay 2014
|Appellation||Santa Maria Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe lemon, floral, citrus and crushed mint-scented 2014 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Block Uu has a touch of buttery richness in its medium-bodied, juicy, lively and nicely balanced style. Barrel-fermented and aged (10% new), it's an outstanding Chardonnay to drink over the coming 4-5 years.
Wine EnthusiastLight and vivacious on the nose, this offers lime blossoms, Anjou pear skins and sharp white jasmine flowers. The aromas settle into a salted peach-candy character. Tonic, lime blossoms and lime-zest flavors show on the palate, quite bright and nearly tropical.
Wine SpectatorFresh-cut lime and lemony flavors present a tart, crisp, juicy profile that fans of vibrancy will appreciate. Drink now. 1,185 cases made.
