Foxen Bien Nacido Vineyard Block UU Chardonnay 2015
|Appellation||Santa Maria Valley|
Wine EnthusiastIntriguing lemongrass, Asian pear, chamomile, jasmine and pink grapefruit aromas arise on the nose of this dynamic single-block bottling. Tons of energy show on the sip, which is light and yet offers lots of intriguing flavors, from white sesame and chalk to lime peels and grippy yellow grapefruit pithiness.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard Block Uu reveals pleasant sulfide/struck match notes over a core of lemon curd, grapefruit and baking bread plus a waft of orange blossoms. Light to medium-bodied with a wicked backbone of racy acid, it delivers intense citrus and mineral layers with a nice perfumed lift to the finish.
Wine SpectatorDriven by a pure, zesty core of grapefruit and citrusy flavors that are lively and cleansing, this is complex on its own terms. Drink now through 2020. 1,530 cases made.
