Highlighting lush, layered flavors, bright acidity and impeccably balanced French oak, Migration is dedicated to crafting wines from the finest cool-climate winegrowing regions. Established in 1973, Bien Nacido has earned a reputation as one of California’s premier vineyards. Our prized blocks include original 1973 plantings, as well as vines planted in 1991. Grown in soils with abundant limestone, these older vines produce a gorgeous Chardonnay with complex minerality, a lovely texture and multilayered citrus and orange blossom flavors.

Wine Profile

Production Notes
Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay; Hand harvested and whole cluster pressed cold to tank, racked to barrel for cool barrel fermentation on lees
Winemaker Notes
The 2019 growing season produced a rich and radiant Chardonnay from the famed Bien Nacido Vineyard, with layers of ripe pear, lime and citrus blossom, as well as a sophisticated undercurrent of zesty minerality. On the palate, bright acidity and subtle hints of vanilla and caramel from French oak aging add poise and nuance, drawing the wine to an impeccably balanced finish.
Production
On the Central Coast, cooler summer temperatures with no major heat events ensured a long growing season and abundant hangtime, leading to perfect ripeness and flavor development in the grapes. Lower-than-average yields and smaller berries resulted in incredibly rich and concentrated wines, with our Central Coast reds possessing amazing color, bright acids and deep, lush flavors, and our whites displaying beautiful brightness and sophisticated citrus and stone fruit layers.
