This 2010 special bottling comes from Sanford's two best blocks (Wente and Clone 15), and are whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented. With the traditional Burgundian technique of lees stirring and barrel aging, this wine has developed richness and elegance sought after in fine Chardonnay. Intense but balanced, this flagship Chardonnay has aromas of pineapple, lemon zest and hazelnut, with hints of vanilla. On the palate this wine shows the classic Santa Rita qualities of minerality and crisp acid to balance the full palate.
"A big step up, with fantastic purity and definition on both the nose and palate, the 2010 Chardonnay La Rinconada boasts classy, mineral-laced aromas of crisp apple, brioche, white flowers and fresh creme on the nose. This flows to a medium to full-bodied, seamless and beautifully pure palate that has outstanding length and grip. Enjoy this beauty over the coming 3-4 years. Drink now-2017. "
The Wine Advocate
"Light yellow. Ripe pear, vanilla and anise on the fragrant, smoke-accented nose. A touch of honey adds depth and sweetness to intense orchard fruit and vanilla flavors, with a spicy element contributing lift. Finishes spicy and very long, with an echo of iodine and impressive clarity."
