Sandhi Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2017

7,12300

The 2017 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills was aged 12 months in used, 500-liter barrels and another six months in tank. It’s youthfully shy on the nose, slowly giving up notions of saline, crushed shell, Greek yogurt and orange blossom with pie crust, Golden delicious apple, white peaches and notes of honey and hazelnut. Light to medium-bodied, it offers great balance of spicy fruit and mineral notions framed by tangy acidity and finishing long and textured. 1,038 cases were made.
