"Racines is a single wine brand created by some of the finest hands of the winemaking world - we are talking Burgundy royalty teaming up with California genius. Etienne de Montille, proprietor of iconic Burgundy estate Domaine de Montille founded in the 17th century, and his Chef de Cave, Brian Sieve, have collaborated with Rodolphe Péters of cult Champagne house Champagne Péters and renowned, hugely in demand winemaker Justin Willett of Santa Barbara AVA, USA with a shared vision to create some of the most exceptional wines in the world from the finest vineyards in the land, stunning vineyards which are hugely in demand with the most savvy and ambitious winemakers.
Bentrock is situated on the extreme, western edge of the Santa Rita Hills on the Santa Rosa Road Corridor. The team is fortunate to work with two parcels of Chardonnay there, both north facing slopes. The first sits on the far western side of the vineyard and on an extremely exposed perch looking out over the Santa Rita Hills on very rocky soils. Protected by the first parcel, our second sits a little lower and just to the east. This block is truly north facing with slightly more marine sedimentary soils.
VINOUS - 94pts. "The 2017 Chardonnay Bentrock Vineyard is a striking wine that captures the essence of this rugged hillside site on the western edge of the appellation. Bright and finely sculpted, the 2017 is just loaded with character. Lemon peel, mint, white flowers, crushed rocks and intense saline notes build into the mineral-drenched finish. This is such a spectacular debut, not to mention a very pure expression of Bentrock." - Antonio Galloni"
