Au Bon Climat Sanford & Benedict Chardonnay 2017
|Region||California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills|
|Brand||Au Bon Climat|
The 2017 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict Vineyard is ample, creamy and super-expressive, with terrific textural nuance and tons of class. Clean mineral, saline notes frame a core of ripe pear, jasmine and mint in a wine that deliver superb quality for the money. The delineation and sheer classiness of the 2017 is impossible to miss, as are the soft curves that give it so much allure.
The 2017 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict Vineyard, aged in one-third new oak, features orange blossom, lime peel, saline and white peach scents. The light to medium-bodied palate gives toasty fruits with a wicked mineral line, great texture and zesty acidity, finishing long and textured. 300 cases produced.
Very ripe, with intense smokiness to the baked white fruit flavors. Curry notes show on the finish. Drink now. 350 cases made
