In 1969, brothers Bob and Steve Miller found a parcel of land they immediately knew had incredible potential for grape growing. Their vision was simple, to develop a vineyard that would be acknowledged as amongst the most recognised vineyards of the world. It took them four years of hard work to set up the 121 hectares of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The combination of rocky soils, cool climate and ocean influence as well as the talented winemaker, Trey Fletcher, make the Bien Nacido wines a superb, handcrafted range whose pedigree is simply unparalleled.
Winemaker Trey Fletcher is creating texturally tantalizing wines that are exciting to sip now but built to last for years in the cellar. This shows lemon blossom, lemon skin, almond and macadamia scents, with a chalky minerality that's evident even on the nose. Racy, laser-focused acidity frames the palate, where lime, grapefruit and apple flavors unfold. Drink now through 2024.more

The spicy and earthy nose on this sprightly bottling from the iconic vineyard is superb: pressed mulberry, beet and rhubarb aromas lifted by thyme, star anise and bay leaf. The palate is slightly mellower, with rounded pomegranate and cherry notes cut by pine needle-like spice.more
