Sanford Vista Al Rincon Chardonnay
This is the 3rd vintage of our single block Vista al Rincon Chardonnay; our prized block of Wente clone Chardonnay from La Rinconada Vineyard. From this section of the vineyard, one gets a majestic ‘view of the corner’ defined by the hills to the south. A key component of our flagship single vineyard La Rinconada Chardonnay for years, we selected just 10 barrels for this special single block bottling.
PROFILE & WINEMAKING
Deep golden in color, this full bodied wine is our most opulent Chardonnay. It is wonderfully aromatic with baking spices, peach and pineapple, along with hints of Meyer lemon. The lush palate is balanced with crisp acidity and a lengthy tropical finish. Traditional Burgundian winemaking, including whole cluster pressing and barrel fermentation, added layered complexity. This classic, cool climate Chardonnay can pair with a wide range of cuisines from seafood to rich cream sauces.
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.
