Bien Nacido Vineyard is famous for growing award-winning Chardonnay. Located in the Santa Maria Valley of Santa Barbara County, Bien Nacido Vineyard is highly influenced by the California coast. The soil is well-drained sandy loam with pieces of decomposed shale.
Aliento del Sol Chardonnay is a luscious, structured wine with intense flavors of ripe pear and green apple. Barrel fermentation contributes nuances of oak spice and honey, while malolactic fermentation creates a round mouthfeel with a supple, creamy texture.
