Failla Platt Vineyard Chardonnay 2018
Just as good, the 2018 Chardonnay Platt Vineyard, from a site in the Sonoma Coast, saw a similar élevage, spending 11 months in 15% new French oak. Rocking white peach, white currants, citrus, and floral notes all emerge from the glass, and while the Estate Vineyard is more mineral and savory, this leans more on its fruit and is medium to full-bodied, with wonderful purity, bright acidity, and a great finish. It's another beautiful Chardonnay from this team.
The 2018 Chardonnay Platt Vineyard shows just how magical this site is. Bright, lifted and wonderfully deep, the Platt has so much to offer. Green pear, mint, white flowers and sage open up in the glass, but it is the wine's balance and exquisite harmony that elevate it into the realm of the truly sublime. A wine of crystalline tension and beauty, the Platt is impeccably refined from start to finish. Superb.
The 2018 Chardonnay Platt Vineyard has a nose of yellow apples, citrus peel, baker's yeast and hints of dried herbs. The light-bodied palate offers mineral-laced, crunchy fruits with tangy acidity and an uplifted, yeasty finish. 450 cases produced.
