2016 FOXEN "BLOCK UU-BIEN NACIDO VINEYARD" SANTA MARIA VALLEY CHARDONNAY, SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, CALI
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "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." (06/2018)
91 points Wine Advocate: "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." (04/2018)
Foxen's "Block UU" Chardonnay comes from the famous Bien Nacido vineyard. We love it for its brightness, complexity, and structure - a consitently terrific Chardonnay value, year after year. All the fruit is night harvested by hand, whole cluster pressed, and fermented with native yeast in 20% new French oak , followed by aging on the lees for eight months.
About: Bill Wathen and Dick Doré have been making wine together since 1985, when they founded Foxen Winery & Vineyard at the historic Rancho Tinaquaic in Northern Santa Barbara County. Since that time their dedication has remained the same: the creation of small production, sustainably-farmed, vineyard-focused wines using a straightforward and minimalist approach to winemaking.
