2016 Qupe Chardonnay Santa Barbara County "Y" Block

Share on Facebook

This wine comes primarily from the Y Block at Bien Nacido Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley area of northern Santa Barbara County. The block was custom planted for Qupé in 2005 on gravelly river bench soil, directly behind the winery. All of the components were whole cluster pressed, chilled overnight in tank, and then transferred to barrel for complete barrel and malolactic fermentation. Aged on the lees for 9 months in French oak Burgundy barrels from the Francois Freres cooperage (15% new), before blending and bottling.The 2015 Qupé Chardonnay “Y Block” is very traditional in style, with fresh and crisp mineral notes, lemon zest and a touch of oak on the finish. Enjoy over the next 2-3 years with seared scallop pasta dishes or simply by itself with a great Beach Boys album
