2017 Racines Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay

SKU #1443327 92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Racines Wine Co. is the Sta. Rita Hills-focused partnership between Justin Willett and Etienne de Montille, and their 2017 Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay is a straight forward expression of the place their collaboration calls home. Classic aromas of pear skin, lemon curd and buttered toast lead into a creamy and pure palate. The finish is crisp and energetic, with a floral and airy quality to the finish. (ML) Inner quote mark

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chardonnay (Sta. Rita Hills) is a blend taken from Wenzlau, Bentrock and Sanford & Benedict. Creamy, open-knit and inviting, the 2017 is incredibly delicious. Lemon confit, white flowers, mint and light tropical notes grace this subtle, gorgeous appellation-level wine from De Montille. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

K&L Notes

Winery notes: Racines is a collaboration between four great voices of wine. Justin Willett of Lieu Dit and Tyler has been joined in his home appellation, the Sta. Rita Hills, by Étienne de Montille and Brian Sieve of Domaine de Montille and Rodolphe Péters of Pierre Péters. Together, they are marrying the time-honored techniques of Burgundy and Champagne with the pioneering energy of California - and, in the process, they are rediscovering the nuances of the appellation’s most iconic vineyards. New cooperage and custom vats, tailored to Étienne’s technique, have been imported. The Chardonnays are raised with more finessing of the fine lees and longer élevage. The results are immediately apparent in the glass: these are tensile and crystalline expressions of the Sta. Rita Hills - at once familiar and rendered anew.
