Bien Nacido Chardonnay
Thirteen miles from the Pacific Ocean, Bien Nacido benefits from one of the longest growing seasons in California, punctuated by warm, temperate, sunny days and cool, foggy nights and mornings. The vineyard soils are Elder series which consist of well-drained gravelly loam formed from acid shale and sandstone.
Aromas of ripe peach, Meyer lemon, cinnamon baked pear, cookie dough and pleasing aromas of white cherry blossom. Flavors of white peach, cantaloupe rind and white chocolate. The cinnamon carries onto the palate with notes of honeysuckle on the finish. This wine has a rounded mouthfeel with a lingering acidity in the finish.
