With the Block UU Bien Nacido Chardonnay, beautiful tropical and citrus aromas are followed by a rich full mouthfeel and flavors of grapefruit, pineapple and mango--with notes of minerality and just a hint of toasty vanilla. Birght acidity beautifully balances the richness of the mouthfeel.
"A wine of significant potential, the 2011 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Block UU (from tank) is cool and beautifully focused, with lovely purity in its aromas and flavors. Flowers, lemon peel, crushed rocks and spices are layered into the energetic, polished finish.
The Wine Advocate
"Block UU is the same as W Block (the source of Chanin's chardonnay above). This wine is a blend of the original Clone 4 material and newer chardonnay selections planted in 2002 and 2003. This has a mouthwatering pineapple tang, along with biscuity lees and mineral qualities that give it a savory edge. For pan-roasted sea bass."
