  • Project by Master Sommelier Rajat Parr
  • Fruit sources from Parr's Domaine de la Côte estate
  • Rich and complex with fresh acidity and fine minerality

‘This is a special vintage as it marks the first time all of the grapes that went into this wine were grown on our own Domaine de la Côte estate. Wine is made in the vineyard and it is noticeable to me what a big step-up this vintage is in terms of complexity, ageability, and nuance because we controlled the farming. This wine leads with a faint nose of reduction and flinty minerality. Rich notes of custard and lees mix with smoky notes of crushed rock and ocean spray. The tension on the palate offers a lively wine with textural richness that will age well for decades.’ – Producer’s note

Antonio Galloni

‘Sandhi’s 2017 Chardonnay (Sta. Rita Hills) is translucent and wonderfully expressive, not to mention full of pure appeal. Orchard fruit, citrus peel and floral notes are sculped with lovely energy and persistence. Poised and impeccable in its balance, the Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay has a lot to recommend it. Then again, most of the fruit is sourced from Domaine de la Côte, so the quality level here is not entirely surprising.’ –
