Sandhi Santa Rita Hills Chardonnay 2017

Sandhi Santa Rita Hills Chardonnay 2017

Availability: Out of stock


"Sandhi's 2017 Chardonnay (Sta. Rita Hills) is translucent and wonderfully expressive, not to mention full of pure appeal. Orchard fruit, citrus peel and floral notes are sculped with lovely energy and persistence. Poised and impeccable in its balance, the Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay has a lot to recommend it. Then again, most of the fruit is sourced from Domaine de la Côte, so the quality level here is not entirely surprising. Drinking window: 2019-2025. 90 points

Sashi Moorman and Rajat Parr have really focused the Sandhi range over the last few years, as they balance their energy across various projects. That strategy is paying off big time. The Sta. Rita Hills wines benefit from fruit that doesn’t make the cut at Domaine de la Côte, while the single vineyard offerings highlight the uniqueness of a handful of other sites in the appellation. Generally, the Sandhi wines are made to be pretty approachable upon release. Among other considerations, the Pinots in this range are mostly done with destemmed fruit."
