SANDHI Chardonnay, Sanford & Benedict 2015

This outstanding Chardonnay comes from the legendary Sanford & Benedict vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hilla. The vines were planted in 1971 and the fruit for this bottling is sourced from the Mt. Eden blocks, which are some of the oldest in the vineyard. As this begins to open it releases brilliant aromatics of lemon peel, crushed limestone, and floral scents. On the palate this possesses a beautiful texture, balanced by a gorgeous touch of acidity, minerality and a blast of citrus which lingers beautifully on the finish. This is delicious now and will also continue to gain complexity over the next decade. (Best 2019-2029) - June 2017 (MD)
