Sandhi Chardonnay Santa Barbara County 2016
Founded in 2010 by Rajat Parr, this small production, California based winery highlights the connection between man, earth, and the vine. Fruit for their entry-level Chardonnay comes from vineyards in Sta. Rita Hills, Santa Maria, and Santa Ynez, with a median vine age of 30+ years. Notes of yellow stone fruit and nuts are balanced by lemon-driven acidity, bringing Old World elegance to New World fruit. A steal for the price!
California, United States
The sun in the American wine solar system, but at the same time a wine 'nation' in its own right, California is like the popular kid in high school that was good at everything and good-looking, too.
