As in past years, this wine is sourced from Santa Maria’s famous Bien Nacido Vineyard in combination with cool-climate fruit from vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills. The juicy tropical aromatics of coconut, mango and papaya and lush texture are the hallmarks of Bien Nacido. Sta. Rita Hills fruit lends more citric notes of mandarin orange and key lime, and brisk acidity to give backbone to the wine.
