Sanford Vista Al Rincon Chardonnay
The 2013 Vista al Rincon Chardonnay is the second release of this single block of Wente Clone from the La Rinconada Vineyard. This four acre block consistently delivers fruit of such high quality that it is a cornerstone of our flagship La Rinconada blend. The 2013 vintage was a stellar one and we selected 10 barrels that stood out as being exceptional and worthy of bottling on their own. Full bodied and complex, this wine was produced using whole cluster pressing and barrel fermentation. Vibrant and balanced, this special Chardonnay has aromas of pineapple, citrus and hazelnut. This wine shows the classic Sta. Rita qualities of lovely minerality and crisp acid to balance the rich palate.
Pair with Butternut Squash Soup
The rich and velvety flavors of this soup are echoed with our Chardonnay, while providing a slight acidty to help balance the dish.
