Sanford Vista Al Rincon Chardonnay
This is the 4th bottling of 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 the single vineyard Chardonnay for years, we selected 10 barrels of this special wine for the single block bottling.
PROFILE & WINEMAKING
Deep golden, this full-bodied Chardonnay is our most opulent bottling. It is quite aromatic with baking spices, grilled peach and pineapple, complemented by hints of marzipan. The lush palate is balanced with crisp acidity and a lengthy tropical finish. Traditional Burgundian winemaking, including whole cluster pressing and barrel fermentation, add complexity. This classic, cool climate Chardonnay can pair with a wide range of cuisines from seafood to cream sauces.
