Sandar & Hem Wines - Single-Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountain Chardonnay and Pinot Noir 6-Packs

Greetings Berserkers! We are excited to be back for BD13 after our BD12 newbie debut.

Sandar & Hem crafts transparently made wines from distinctive sites within the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA. Our winemaker Rob Bergstrom launched Sandar & Hem to explore the unique and diverse expressions of vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains after working harvests at Rhys and Mount Eden.

Santa Cruz Mountains wines have a compelling character driven by the altitude and aspect of the mountain environment, strong ocean and bay cooling influences, and diverse soil and geology brought by the upheaval of the San Andreas Fault running through the region. The wines exhibit a purity of fruit and fresh acid, mineral, and tannic structure that can yield delicious wines of balance, that are at their very best paired with food, and which can age gracefully, often for decades. To complement this character, our winemaking approach is to pick relatively early just as phenolic ripeness is reached and then to foster the grapes with a light hand to allow the sites to speak. We have chosen each special vineyard site based on a number of factors including the history of the site and vine age, compelling plant material (e.g. heritage clones, own-rooted sites), farming (organic and biodynamic practices preferred), interesting geology, and microclimates.

You can learn more about the vineyards and winery at our website: https://www.sandarandhem.com/About-Us
We also posted a Wine Berserkers newbie thread last year at: https://www.wineberserkers.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=89&t=176897&p=3179124#p3179124

For BD13 we have three 6-pack sampler offerings, which includes a Mindego Ridge Pinot Noir and Chardonnay pack, a mixed single-vineyard Chardonnay pack and a mixed single-vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay pack. These sampler packs will give you a good idea of what our wines are all about and will introduce you to some of the amazing vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains that we are fortunate enough to work with.

We also have the last handful of cases of our 2020 Grenache rosé remaining that we are offering at great pricing to make room for the 2021 rosé that will be released soon.

Ground shipping is included for any additional bottles that you add to you orders with one of these offers with 10% on any items beyond the 6-packs. Wines will be shipped within a week or two of BD13 to locations with suitable weather and held until safe shipping is possible for places on weather hold.

Order in for some Pinot and Chardonnay. The 2019’s are awesome wines. The Mindego Ridge Pinot is so delicate and delicious and the 2019 Bruzzone and Bald Mountain Chardonnays are on fire. Rhys lovers look no farther.

Bought a sampler to include a Pinot Noir.
Last years BD 12, I purchased the sampler of the Chardonnays and have enjoyed the two I sampled so far (Mindego Ridge and Santa Cruz Mountains).
Well made wines that speak SCM!

Thanks for the great feedback and your order! I think you will love the 2019 Chardonnays and the range of single vineyards really showcase the range of vineyard expressions in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Went for the chard 6 on the strong recommendation of Ken Zinns.

Thanks for the order Stewart. I’ve followed your posts on closures and you’ll be glad to know we use DIAM 10 for the wines you ordered. This year we will be doing Trefinos trials partially based on your experiences as they seem to have some superior characteristics.

Excited to try your Rose, thanks so much for the offer.
