Surprisingly authentic- none of that over-oaked butterball California stuff here. This is wine that spells relief- just a solid, good old fashioned white wine that smells interesting, feels nice in the mouth, and tastes good. And the price is right.I am all for it.

A new offering, the 2005 Foxglove is basically a second label. It is a combination of estate grown fruit blended with Edna Valley grapes. About 15% is barrel fermented in old oak. The result is an outstanding white wine possessing attractive aromas of lemon oil, white corn, crushed rocks, and white currants as well as a steely crispness reminiscent of a top-notch Chablis. Drink it over the next 1ndash;3 years.

Foxglove's remarkable 2009 Chardonnay, a non-oaked, stainless steel-fermented and aged white that sees no malolactic fermentation. Moreover, there are 30,000 cases of this beauty, a blend of two-thirds Santa Barbara County fruit and the rest from Paso Robles and further north in Monterey. It exhibits crisp honeyed lemon, citrus, poached pear, and honeysuckle notes intermixed with a hint of pineapple. However, it is the zesty acidity, stunning purity, and delightful balance this naked Chardonnay possesses that make it so appealing. Enjoy it over the next year.

Very pale, bright yellow. Aromas of lemon ice tea and minerals. Nicely concentrated and ripe on entry, then firm in the middle palate. The lemon flavor continues through the wine, but the finish betrays a slight bitter edge.

The sensational 2008 Chardonnay Central Coast, which is fermented and aged completely in stainless steel with no malolactic fermentation, is a 30,000-cuveacute;e of fabulous Chardonnay. Loads of tropical fruit, honeysuckle, and orange blossom notes fill the olfactory sense, as does the luscious medium-bodied texture on the palate. The wine is buttressed by crisp underlying acidity, and the result is a fresh, naked expression of Chardonnay that is top-flight. Drink it over the next year or so.
