Qupé Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley Block Eleven Bien Nacido Reserve 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Qupe Bien Nacido Reserve Block 11 Chardonnay 2005 375 Ml : 375ML Half BottleWINEMAKER NOTES: After the warmer, riper '03 and '04, it was nice to get back to the classic balance and structure of this '05. The aromas show minerals and citrus along with hints of comice pear and vanillin. We used a lot of new oak, but the oak stands in the back and doesn't interfere. The alcohol is balanced nicely at 13.8%. This wine takes a little longer to open up than the more forward '03 and '04 and will benefit nicely from some bottle age. 1349 cases were produced.QUPE BIEN NACIDO RESERVE BLOCK 11 CHARDONNAY 2005 375 ML
