2021 Rinconada Chardonnay
93 points, Wine Spectator
Hailing from a denser site all around, Rinconada is more flamboyant, showing riper aromas of yellow apple, pear and even pineapple. The fruit purity and minimalist winemaking style found in all Sandhi Chardonnays are here. They're just turned up a notch or two. Yellow fruits of all persuasions - citrus, orchard, and tropical - leap from the glass, followed by hints of sea salt and brown butter. On the palate, these elements converge with structure and weight that accompany their generosity, and while fuller in the mouth, the wine's acidity is palpable, wrapping the entire package with a zip of lemon peel. All in all, a finely balanced and textured wine that's sure to please. Perhaps the perfect introduction to Sandhi single-vineyard Chardonnay.
