"A wild, exotic wine, the 2015 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Block UU emerges from a parcel of Chardonnay that was regrafted onto Riesling roots. Tangerine, acacia, honey, apricot jam and sage infuse the oily, voluptuous Chardonnay from Foxen. The Block UU Chardonnay is always long on personality, as it is once again in 2015."

2015 Foxen Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard - Block UU
Foxen Vineyard & Winery

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.
