Qupé Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley Block Eleven Bien Nacido Reserve 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Qupe Block 11 Bien Nacido Reserve Chardonnay 2006 Half-Size Btl. : 375ML Half BottleWINEMAKER NOTES: This wine is 95% Chardonnay and 5% Roussanne from blocks Eleven and Ten respectively at Bien Nacido Vineyards. These are both custom blocks that were planted exclusively for Qup in 1997. The Chardonnay block is really hitting its stride in its 10th leaf. The Roussanne was blended in only because we keep running out of this Chardonnay while a lot of people are still trying to figure out what Roussanne is. This wine is quite typical of chardonnay from Bien Nacido in a cool vintage. Not as opulent as the 2005 and not as mineral as the 2001, but certainly in a similar vein to both. This is one of the best chardonnays Ive made and a great candidate for the cellar.QUPE BLOCK 11 BIEN NACIDO RESERVE CHARDONNAY 2006 HALF-SIZE BTL.

Our goal is to make wines with impeccable balance that can be enjoyed in their youth, yet because of the good acidity from cool vineyard sites can also benefit from ageing.
