Originally planted in 1973 with Clone 4 on its own roots, Block UU, at the eastern edge of the Bien Nacido Vineyard, was inter-planted in 1991 with the same Clone 4 Chardonnay. The wine is distinguished by beautiful tropical and citrus aromas that are followed by a rich full mouthfeel and flavors of grapefruit, pineapple and mango, notes of minerality and just a hint of toasty vanilla. Malo-lactic fermentation is discouraged to help this wine retain its natural bright acidity that beautifully balances the richness of the mouthfeel.

Wine EnthusiastLight and vivacious on the nose, this offers lime blossoms, Anjou pear skins and sharp white jasmine flowers. The aromas settle into a salted peach-candy character. Tonic, lime blossoms and lime-zest flavors show on the palate, quite bright and nearly tropical.
