White Wine by Sanford from Central Coast, California. Light golden with a slight green hue, the 2016 Sanford & Benedict Chardonnay entices with aromas of white peach, lemon peel, white flowers and spearmint. The focused palate is bright and tense, with notes of lemon preserves and minerality. This is always our most old world Chardonnay. The fruit from this old, own rooted vineyard block was gently whole cluster pressed and fermented in French Oak, where it was allowed to gently age for 16 months with occasional lees stirring. Only 13 barrels were selected for this bottling.
