The Sanford Benedict Vineyard Chardonnay from Lutum is an excellent showing in this vintage. Winemaker Gavin Chanin has done an fantastic job working with this historic vineyard in 2016. This Chardonnay opens to attractive aromas of Meyer lemon, crisp apple, vanilla blossom, honey and white flowers which all take shape in the glass. It has a remarkable creamy texture on the palate and delivers flavors of quince, pear, honey, citrus, spice and crushed stone. This is already quite appealing and should continue to drink well for years to come.
