2009 Sanford & Benedict Chardonnay

Santa Rita Hills / 750ml / SOLD OUT

Planted in 1971, Sanford & Benedict is the oldest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyard in Santa Barbara County, and one of the most iconic vineyards in California.

Its north-facing location at the epicenter of the Santa Rita Hills appellation allows the grapes to ripen perfectly in the cool and foggy weather. The marine-based soil (clay and diatomaceous) delivers smaller yields and cluster.

Sandhi Wine’s grapes come from blocks that are own-rooted. Due to the vine age and own-root system, our wines have an added intensity and complexity.
