Tasting Note

This wine really stood out from a large crowd of other American Chardonnays at a tasting last year. The small Bien Nacido vineyard benefits from a cool microclimate, allowing the Chardonnay to ripen gently and slowly. The fruit is very much peaches and nectarines whilst complexity comes by way of nutty and caramel flavours. Only 28 barrels of this were made.
