Chardonnay 'Keefer Ranch', Failla

Chardonnay 'Keefer Ranch', Failla

Failla’s Keefer Ranch Chardonnay is planted to the Wente clone on the Goldridge series of soils. Keefer Ranch was one of the first in the vineyard designate program, producing wines of consistency, while maintaining intensity. This wine exudes pure fruit, but sustains an underlying level of elegance. Fog blankets the site and burns off late in the morning providing balance and and bright acidity.

Review:
The 2018 Chardonnay Keefer Ranch is bright and beautifully lifted in the glass, with a real sense of translucence that gives it energy. Pear, white flowers, mint and almond all develop in the glass. This bright, airy Chardonnay has a lot to offer, especially as it gains volume and richness with a bit of time in the glass.
