Tasting notes

“Lemon confit, white flowers, apricot and lightly tropical notes are woven together in a finessed, wonderfully nuanced Chardonnay full of character and personality. If California has a  classification of vineyard site, Sanford & Benedict would sit at or near the top. This is a terrific expression of site.”

Production

Viticulture

Sourced from the original, own-rooted, Mt. Eden selection planted in 1971, these vines represent the first plantings in the region and predate the formation of the appellation by 26 years. This gentle, north-facing site has silex and clay-loam top soils with threads of limestone stratifying the sub soil.
