From the famous Sanford & Benedict Vineyard with a portion coming from the original plantings there dating back to 1971. These chardonnay vines are the oldest vines in the Sta. Rita Hills. situated on a gently north facing slope with thin soils consisting of lots of shale and chert.
VINOUS - 93 pts. "The 2017 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict has plenty of depth, texture and nuance, but it is also surprisingly tightly wound for a vintage in which wines are generally more open-knit. Bright, savoury and intensely mineral, the 2017 is going to need time to soften. At this point, the 2017 is not terribly expressive of S&B, although it is quite attractive just the same." - Antonio Galloni"
