2014 Sandhi Bentrock Chardonnay
Bentrock Vineyard, near the western edge of the Sta. Rita Hills, continues to produce the finest wine in the Sandhi range. The Chardonnay from these young, north-facing vines in chalky, marine sedimentary soils, is always focused, intense, and intriguing. Reliably the most tightly wound wine upon release, Bentrock expresses the minerality of its site purely and unapologetically.
We are always surprised that such young vines produce such an intense and thought-provoking Chardonnay. The warmth of the 2014 vintage gives this incarnation of Bentrock just the slightest bit of flesh on its persistent finish.
