2017 Fess Parker "Sanford & Benedict Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay (Elsewhere $40)

SKU #1501476 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark From unquestionably one of the top sites in the region, the 2017 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict Vineyard was barrel fermented and aged in slightly more new French oak than the other Chardonnay, spending 9 months in 40% new barrels. It has wonderful purity of fruit and elegance as well as white currant, white flowers, caramelized apples, and spice box-like aromas and flavors. Layered and beautifully textured, with a stacked mid-palate and outstanding length, it's another one of the standouts in the lineup. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tangerine, lime peel and stone notes open to dried hay, lemon meringue, pie crust, honeycomb and floral notions on the nose of the 2017 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict Vineyard. The medium to full-bodied palate gives up lovely honeyed fruits with a creamy texture, tangy acidity and a long, layered finish. 92+ (EB) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict Vineyard is bright, focused and nuanced, with terrific vibrancy and plenty of cut. Lemon peel, mint, white pepper, slate and yellow orchard fruit are all beautifully delineated throughout. In 2017, the S&B Chardonnay really pulses with energy. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2019)
