Chardonnay, ‘Bentrock’, Sandhi
Planted in 2007, Bentrock vineyard is three miles due west of Sanford & Benedict and sits on a north-facing bench. While the vines are far younger than Sanford & Benedict, the site’s very marginal climate and shy bearing shale and diatomaceous soils make it Sandhi’s lowest yielding site. These low yielding vines make their most concentrated wine.

Tasting NotesThe 2013 vintage leads with high-toned minerality followed closely by faint aromas of green and red apples, lime blossom, green banana peel, leafy spring herbs, and smoky white chalk. The palate is taut and dense, beams with acidity and proceeds to a linear and layered finish.
