Sandhi Bent Rock Chardonnay 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Chardonnay Bent Rock seems to open up in all directions. Endless layers of fruit flesh out in the glass. Despite the wine’s considerable intensity and sheer volume, there is more than enough underlying minerality to give structure and, most importantly, a sense of proportion. This is one of the bigger Chardonnays in the Sandhi lineup. Fresh, floral notes add a sense of lift on the close. Balance reigns supreme in the Bent Rock...94" WA 8/12 "Bright yellow. Intensely perfumed aromas of pit fruits, poached pear, honey and lemon zest, complicated by smoky lees, mineral nuances and mounting spiciness. Rich and broad on the palate but there's wonderful vivacity to the wine's nectarine, pear skin and candied citrus flavors. Closes on a smoky, gently sweet note, with excellent persistence and lingering floral and mineral traces....93" IWC 11/12
