About the Wine
This enjoyable white Wine created by Sanford is grown in the Santa Barbara County area of California. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark, you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, imported by Terlato Wines International. Sanford Chardonnay, Santa Barbara County is a flavourful wine, made from Chardonnay grapes. This wine has a cork closure and, like many wines on our list, this wine is suitable for vegan diets. Just perfect with chicken, pork, pastry with rich buttery and creamy sauces. This wine is within our core range for wine.
Chardonnay can produce quality wines in a wide range of climates, with a real varied style. In cool climates like Champagne or Chablis it produces a lean steely wine with pronounced acidity. In warmer climates it develops buttery, honey notes whereas hotter climates, it's richer in body with the flavour of tropical fruits.

Sanford’s founders were pioneers of the Santa Rita Hills. In 1971, Richard Sanford and Michael Benedict realised that the conditions were perfect for making Burgundian style wines. They planted vineyards much to the amusement of the local farmers, but their hunch was proved right in1976 when their first vintage gained global acclaim; Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir now ranks among the best in the world.
Due to an extended, cooler growing season in 2019, grapes ripened with lower levels of sugar and a higher than average yield. The wines are full flavoured with fresh acidity and superb balance. The USA should not be overlooked for only producing full-bodied, powerful wines - there is so much more to discover beyond the stereotype.Explore USA
