SANDHI 2011 CHARDONNAY "RITA'S CROWN" SANTA RITA HILLS 750mL

WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - “Brilliant, the 2011 Chardonnay Rita’s Crown dishes up layers of citrus blossom, oyster shell, white flowers and a saline-like minerality that emerges more on the palate. It is a medium-bodied, gorgeously pure Chardonnay that has laser-like precision and focus. Don’t miss it.”

Started in 2010 by Rajat Parr (wine director for Michael Mina restaurants), Charles Banks (former owner of Screaming Eagle) and Sashi Moorman (winemaker for Stolpman), Sandhi focus on crafting wine from select vineyards in the Santa Rita Hills area of Santa Barbara County. It is because of their focus for balance that these three are so determined to find vineyard sites from the Santa Rita Hills that are old-vine, have cold temperatures and windy exposures. They want wines with vibrancy, freshness and energy, so they prefer neutral barrel and concrete vessel, employing a conservative amount of new French oak, and all wines are wild-yeast fermented. All Chardonnays go through malo-lactic with the lees not stirred.
