About

94

Extremely delicate on the nose, this wine from the historic vineyard shows bruised yellow grapefruit, sliced nectarine and crushed chalk aromas. The evolving palate starts daintily with cut apple and nectarine, then warms into seared peach, buttered popcorn and ripe pear flavors. A chalky, seashell-like structure and pithy texture ensure a long, interesting life.

A saline, salty, white flowers and mineral-laced beauty that’s from one of the top sites in Santa Barbara, the 2014 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict Vineyard is fresh, elegant and downright classy, with vibrant acidity and a great finish. It's one of my favorite Chardonnays from winemaker Gavin Chanin.

Product Description:

Pale straw in color, this Chardonnay has a spring-time freshness to it on the nose with aromas of freshly-cut grass, wild flowers and candied citrus peel. The palate is extremely well-structed with a phenolic ripeness and sharp edge thanks to generous acidity and complexity. The finish is long and thirst quenching.
