Qupé 2017 Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley
This wine is 100% Chardonnay from “Block Eleven” at the Bien Nacido Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley area of northern Santa Barbara County. Block Eleven was originally custom planted for Qupé in 1997 and is known for its high acidity and minerality, thanks to its north by northwest facing hillside exposure.
Mr. Wonderful's Notes
Bright straw color with aromas of lime zest, vanilla meringue, wet stone and some yeasty undertones. The wine has crisp citrus flavors with seafloor minerality and bright acidity in the mouth. The surprise is the viscosity and balance of the mouthfeel that brings you to a lingering spicy oak tinged finish.Taste
