Chardonnay ‘Platt Vineyard’, Failla

Planted in 2003/2004 to a melange of Pinot Noir clones, the Platt Vineyard is located in the western hills of Sebastopol, an area of ever-increasing intrigue to the serious Pinot Noir producer.  The vineyard covers 31 acres ranging from 425-800 feet of elevation, a scant five miles from the pacific coastline.  The climate is relatively mild, with cool marine weather passing through the region on its way to the Sacramento Delta.  Fine, Goldridge sandy loams dominate the soil structure of the site’s southwestern-facing slope.

Review:
The 2016 Chardonnay Platt Vineyard shows why this Sonoma Coast site is so highly regarded. Translucent and energetic in the glass, the 2016 speaks to finesse above all else. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper are all beautifully lifted. Bright, saline notes extend the finish. Simply put, the Platt is sublime.
