2021 Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay
Our 2021 Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay, always a blend from both of our estate vineyards: the historic Sanford & Benedict Vineyard (10%) and La Rinconada (90%). These singular vineyards are in the heart of the cool and coastal Sta. Rita Hills appellation. A wide range of Chardonnay selections are planted on these sites, and this wine is a blend of 6 of these from several different soil types. Gorgeous aromas of chamomile, blown-out candles, and grilled lemon aromas inform the palate which is elegant, and wonderfully suave. The 2021 will pair better with lighter, simpler fare and is open, charming and delicious.
