Winemaker's Notes

The juicy tropical aromatics of coconut, mango and papaya and lush texture are the hallmarks of Bien Nacido. Sta. Rita Hills fruit lends more citric notes of mandarin orange and key lime, and brisk acidity to give backbone to the wine. All lots were whole cluster pressed, barrel fermented and aged for 11 months in 60-gallon French oak barrels (Allier and Vosges, 25% new). While in oak, the wine completed 100% Malolactic fermentation. Lees were stirred weekly to provide the Chardonnay toasty, yeasty highlights and luscious mouth feel. The bright acidity and fresh fruit flavors render the 2006 Lincourt Vineyards Santa Barbara County Chardonnay.
