2017 Bien Nacido Chardonnay

Something special happened in 2017 to our old vines in W Block. The normally tropical fruit and powerful palate that Bien Nacido always shows, was wrapped under a distinct layer of minerality. During a blind tasting, our wine team even guessed this one wrong. It has grapefruit, chamomile, and cut straw that burst out of the glass. The chiseled entry does yield to a rich but energetic palate, but needs a good hour in a decanter. Drink 2019 to 2026
