2017

Quickly becoming a famous planting, Bentrock vineyard lies on the western end of Santa Rosa Road. We are lucky to work with two parcels of Chardonnay here. Both north facing, the first sits atop the vineyard looking out over the Santa Rita Hills on very rocky soils, and in an extremely exposed, windy perch. The second, a little lower and with more soil sits just to the east and is protected by the hilltop our other parcel sits on.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

The 2017 Chardonnay Bentrock Vineyard is a striking wine that captures the essence of this rugged hillside site on the western edge of the appellation. Bright and finely sculpted, the 2017 is just loaded with character. Lemon peel, mint, white flowers, crushed rocks and intense saline notes build into the mineral-drenched finish. This is such a spectacular debut, not to mention a very pure expression of Bentrock
