Foxen Block UU-Bien Nacido Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

$33.99

New Chardonnay release from Foxen, one of the leading wineries of California's Central Coast.  Only 800 cases were made - hurry! 95 Points Antonio Galloni:  "Foxen's 2014 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard Block UU is one of the quirkiest California Chardonnays readers will come across. The plant material here is Chardonnay grafted onto own-rooted Riesling rootstock that was originally planted in the early 1970s. Oddly enough, this wine often shows distinctly tropical, Riesling-inflected notes, as it does again in 2014. White peach, ash, slate, pear and crushed rocks show superb energy allied to power in a Chardonnay with searing intensity, fabulous balance and tons of personality."

Good presentation. Nice texture and mouthfeel., generous dose of oak. Layers of almonds and honeysuckle. Finishes moderately sweet.

Juicy nose of green apple, dried chrysanthemum, pineapple, and subtle vanilla on the nose. Rich and dense, almost oily, on the palate, but not heavy. Round acidity laced with mint. Energetic and well balanced.

Balanced Chardonnay with some tasty tropical notes. Enjoyed this very much with time in the glass.

Great vineyard, great year. Quince, lychee, citrusy acidity, lil hit of butterscotch on the back end. I'd put this up against any CA chard out there.
