SANDHI Chardonnay, Mt. Carmel Vineyard 2014

The 2014 Mt. Carmel Chardonnay is the second release from this vineyard by Sandhi and it is simply magnificent. As this slowly begins to unwind it delivers gorgeous aromas and flavors of ripe citrus fruits, mango, vanilla blossom, thai basil, honey, slate and flinty minerals which all come together in this flat-out delicious Chardonnay. This wine is remarkably balanced and symmetrical with wonderful elegance and purity of fruit. Everything melds together on the beautifully body which is driven by a vibrant core that resonates through the finish. Overall this is a completely captivating Chardonnay which should continue to drink well for a decade. (Best 2017-2027) - May, 2016 (JD)
