"A gorgeous wine, the 2019 Chardonnay Bentrock Vineyard dazzles with its purity and translucence. Crushed rocks, lemon confit, white flowers and mint give the 2019 its brilliant, sculpted personality. Soaring aromatics and bright saline accents build into the regal finish." 96 points – Vinous Media

What importer Polaner Selections has to say about this wine...

VINEYARD
From the quickly becoming famous plantings to the western end of Santa Rosa Road, Racines is lucky to work with two parcels of Chardonnay from the Bentrock vineyard. Both north facing, the first sits atop the vineyard looking out over the Sta. Rita Hills on very rocky soils, in an extremely exposed and windy perch. The second, a little lower and with more soil, sits just to the east and is protected by the hilltop the other piece sits on.
SOIL
Santa Lucia shaly clay loam, Tierra sandy loam
VITICULTURE
Farmed using organic methods
VINIFICATION
The wines were fermented in a combination of 500L puncheons, 350L barrels and 228L barriques, resulting in about 25% new oak on the wine. After just under a year in barrel, the wines and all the lees were moved to tank for an additional six months of cellaring.Fermented using all native yeats
AGING
18 months total with 11 months in Frech, oak barrels (25% new) and 7 months in tank
