FOXEN CHARDONNAY BIEN NACIDO VINEYARD - BLOCK UU
FOXEN

Originally planted in 1973 with Clone 4 on its own roots, Block UU at the eastern edge of the Bien Nacido Vineyard was inter-planted in 1991 with the same Clone 4 Chardonnay. Hand-harvested grapes are gently whole-cluster pressed and fermented 100% in barrel, after which time the wine rests on its lees for 8 months. Malolactic fermentation is discouraged to help this wine retain its natural bright acidity.
