Sanford Vista Al Rincon Chardonnay
This bottling of our prized Wente selection of Chardonnay is 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 6 barrels of this special wine for the single block bottling.
PROFILE & WINEMAKING
This slender Chardonnay is quite aromatic with apricot, brioche, and marmalade. The lively palate has a very stony and minerally texture that leaves you wanting another taste immediately. Traditional Burgundian winemaking, including whole cluster pressing and barrel fermentation in French Oak, allow this singular site to shine. This wine is a natural with richer dishes.
