2018 Sandar & Hem "Bruzzone Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

SKU #1483568 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Clean lines of chamomile, freshly grated yuzu zest and light chalk show on the very precise and chiseled nose of this bottling from a vineyard planted in 1998 jus t four miles from the ocean. The sip is very grippy, with an aggressively chalky texture that surrounds white-peach and tart orange flavors. *Editors’ Choice* (MK) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chardonnay Bruzzone is an attractive Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay. Bright acids and veins of underlying salinity perk up the lemon confit, mint, white pepper and floral notes. Readers will find a mid-weight, taut Chardonnay with striking translucence and plenty of class. I would give it a few hours of aeration. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "The first aromas of citrus zest and flint open up to barely-ripe Gravenstein apple, meyer lemon curd, and almond blossom. The palate is focused, taught, and slightly saline, with intense mineral structure and the polished edges of a wine raised on it's lees for 18 months. Tension and minerality linger through the long finish. Planted in 1998 on alluvium of raised, ancient marine terraces and coastal benches, the Bruzzone Vineyard is four miles from the Pacific Ocean in the Scotts Valley subregion. The cool climate of the Santa Cruz Mountains and ancient alluvial soils of this site produce a racy Chardonnay of great precision and structure."
