Foxen Vineyard & Winery, 2016 Foxen Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard - Block UU

"Sea salt, preserved lemons, pan-seared apples, plumeria and honeysuckle show on the engaging nose of this bottling from a preferred block in this historic vineyard. The palate plays to the savory side of Chardonnay, offering an oily texture that carries flavors of cashew and marmalade. —M.K."

Foxen Vineyard & Winery, 2016 Foxen Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard - Block UU

"The 2016 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard Block Uu offers up notes of citrus pith, lime, buttered apples and grapefruit, followed by a medium-bodied, glossy palate underpinned by bright, mouthwatering acids. It has a nice sense of completeness and finishes quite long. It's also quite keenly priced."

2016 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.
