2021 Bentrock Chardonnay
96 points, Wine Advocate
The most transparent and singular Sandhi wine, Bentrock’s unrelenting winds and chapped earth translate to sheer raciness and tightwire tension. Just as electric is the Tissot-like Reduction - an homage to the uniquely mineral properties of famed Jura vigneron Stéphane Tissot’s wines. Here they show as gunflint and herbs framed by bergamot zest, fresh ginger and profoundly intense structure. Fruit takes a back seat – or even the trunk – in this cuvée. Ripping acidity and persistent tannins yield a white wine beyond compare. Pair with shellfish and scallops.
