Sanford La Entrada Chardonnay
This was the first Chardonnay block chosen for a special bottling 12 years ago. “La Entrada” is a block of clone 15 at the entrance to La Rinconada Vineyard. The combination of clone and soil derived from Santa Ynez River deposits, gives amazing aromatics, lovely texture and age worthy structure.
PROFILE & WINEMAKING
Jasmine and crème brûlée jump out of the glass while the bright and saline palate is balanced very well with richness on an elegant finish. Whole cluster pressing and barrel fermentation in French oak showcase this singular site. This classic, cool climate Chardonnay can pair with a wide range of cuisines from Asian to a fresh ceviche.
