Vintage: 2020
Region: Sta. Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County, California
Viticulture: Organic
Grape varieties: 100% Chardonnay

Sandhi Rinconada Vineyard Chardonnay has a core of white peach and apricot with touches of raw almonds, acacia, hay, and lemon cream. Medium-bodied, it has a rounded, gently grippy texture, dynamic flavors that range from bright citrus to panna cotta, and a very long, flavorful finish. The first certified organic vineyard in Santa Barbara County, Rinconada is immediately to the west of Sanford & Benedict. I love Rinconada for the textural wines it produces. While the aromas are close relatives of Sanford & Benedict, the mouthfeel of the wine is fuller, fleshier, and just a bit more unctuous.

About Sandhi Winery

Sandhi is a small-production California winery focusing on select vineyards from the Sta. Rita Hills in Santa Barbara County. Sandhi was founded in 2010 by Rajat Parr, the wine director for Michael Mina Restaurants, and winemaker, Sashi Moorman.

Sandhi represents a union essential to the production of wine: the collaboration between man, earth, and vine. The willing participation of all three elements is necessary to make great wine, and the winegrower must make this collaboration rich and nourishing for all involved. An understanding of these joint efforts informs Sandhi’s exploration of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines throughout the Santa Barbara County terroir.

The individual vineyards from which these grapes originate–some legendary, some new–have been exhaustively vetted for character, personality, and balance. Employing the wisdom and talents of people who know the vineyards, Sandhi is dedicated to making wines of finesse, minerality, acidity, structure, and balance. Wine achieves power and beauty through the seamless integration of these qualities, and this is the inspiration for Sandhi. Wines exhibiting extreme ripeness, alcohol, oak, and other discordant exaggerations cannot truly express the terroir of a specific vineyard.
