Dolin Estate’s 2014 Bien Nacido Vineyard Chardonnay comes from one of the state’s most renowned vineyards, located within the Santa Maria Valley on California’s Central Coast. This funnel-shaped valley opens west to the Pacific Ocean, allowing an influx of cool marine breezes that serve to make this a true “cool climate” viticultural region. Some of California’s best winemakers have produced world-class wines with fruit from this highly regarded vineyard, and Dolin Estate is honored to be one of the lucky few with access to its fruit. The 2014 Bien Nacido Vineyard Chardonnay is straw yellow in color with aromas of lemon, warm yellow apples and white flowers. The palate is nicely balanced and full-bodied with refreshing flavors of mandarin orange, lychee and sweet baking spices.
