Foxglove Chardonnay 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"This terrific portfolio of values is led by Foxglove's remarkable Chardonnay, a non-oaked, stainless steel-fermented and aged white that sees no malolactic fermentation. It exhibits crisp honeyed lemon, citrus, poached pear, and honeysuckle notes intermixed with a hint of pineapple. However, it is the zesty acidity, stunning purity, and delightful balance this naked Chardonnay possesses that make it so appealing. Enjoy it over the next year." -Winery

There are 21,000 cases of the delicious 2011 Chardonnay Central Coast that comes primarily from the Los Alamos sector of Santa Barbara County. A naked Chardonnay aged in stainless steel, it offers lots of crisp tropical fruit, honeysuckle and poached pear characteristics in its elegant, medium-bodied personality. It is an exuberant, Maconnais style of California Chardonnay. It should continue to drink well for 12–18 months.

The 2011 Chardonnay is a beauty, as well as an absurd value. Very clean and lively, with classic Chardonnay notes of juiced apple, citrus and minerality, it is clean and focused on the palate with the richness of the variety, yet also beautiful precision and focus. Classy and well-made, without any apparent oak, it should be purchased by the case and consumed over the coming 2–3 years. Drink now–2016.

Central Coast, CaliforniaParker 91!Foxglove Chardonnay is a superb white wine gem from the region around San Luis Obispo. At the core of Foxglove is Bob Varner, also the winemaker at Varner Wines. Beginning with their first vintage in 1991, Bob sources the wine from a variety of places, all of which are in Edna Valley. The resulting wine has Central Coast appellation pricing, and is full of complex fruit flavors that the Edna Valley appellation is known for. Edna Valley, a relatively small appellation, grows mostly Chardonnay on about 1000 acres. The entire acreage is tightly controlled by a few owners employing the most up-to-date vineyard practices that give the valley impressive evenness. Located just south of San Luis Obispo, its vineyards are some of California's closest to the Pacific Ocean. Mild winters, cool, foggy summer, and clay-loam soils produce a combination of flavors that have been described as "textbook Central Coast."Foxglove Chardonnay always represents a great value. With this wine you have the richness of fruit from California's Central Coast giving you tropical notes. However, the wine is bottled without going through malolactic fermentation and has no oak on it so it maintains a very clean profile. Jeb Dunnuck for Robert Parker's Wine Advocate scored this wine 91 points, calling it "a beauty, as well as an absurd value. Very clean and lively, with classic Chardonnay notes of juiced apple, citrus and minerality, it is clean and focused on the palate with the richness of the variety, yet also beautiful precision and focus. Classy and well-made."Enjoy Foxglove Chardonnay over the next 4-5 years with roast chicken, grilled swordfish, steamers, Cobb salad and cheese.

Fresh and lively with aromatic notes of tropical fruit and pear, in a fleshy, medium bodied style, with obvious minerality and precision.

Though it’s aged in 100% stainless steel, somehow the Foxglove feels bigger and more well-rounded than most unoaked Chardonnays. Lots of melon, cantaloupe and papaya notes, with just a smidge of vanilla on the crisp, clean finish. Perfect with grilled mahi-mahi or chicken with light sauces.
