Sandhi 2012 Chardonnay, "Rita's Crown," STA. Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County, CA
Vinous.com rating: 92..."Bright yellow. Pungent Meyer lemon and yellow apple on the spice- and mineral-tinged nose and in the mouth. Densely packed, nicely focused lemon curd, pear and tangerine flavors become more fleshy with air and pick up a suave honeysuckle nuance. Powerful yet lithe thanks to juicy acidity, which adds lift and bite to the long, incisive finish."
