Varner Bee Block Chardonnay 2014
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Cruz Mountains|
The vines at Bee Block were planted in 1987. This wine is always the most California of the Varner Chardonnays. However, in the last 5 years the minerality of the wines from the Bee Block has become more noticeable as the vines reach further.
Wet stone essence that captivates on the nose, followed lemon oil and hints of lime blossom. The palate is lifted, deep and energetic but still has a delicate texture and precision to it. The minerality is still brilliant on the palate adding lemon wax, and a kiss of spice.
