Kynsi Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard
Kynsi Winery
United States - California - Santa Maria Valley

The Bien Nacido Vineyard is located in the Santa Maria Valley on the South Central Coast of California, just east of Santa Maria. The topography of the valley features transverse ranges with an east/west orientation, opening up to the Pacific Ocean. The climate is strongly influenced by the ocean providing ideal temperate growing conditions for Chardonnay. Early spring warming, mild summer temperatures and late arriving cold fall temperatures provide a long growing season for the development of rich color along with concentrated and complex flavors.

The wine exhibits a nuanced bouquet of white peaches, honeysuckle, sandstone and Golden Delicious apple.
These delicacies are echoed on the palate with creamy waves of papaya, almond and lemon mousse.

2013 Kynsi Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard - 93 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 93 pts"This wine from the historic vineyard is light in color but not shy on the nose at all: lime blossoms, lemon curds, honeysuckle and lemon-lime soda all leap from the glass. The palate combines chopped dill and dewy herbs with green fruits, from pears to kiwi to lime peels, all presented with a lot of briskness."
