Failla Chardonnay 750ml
The Chardonnay program at Failla continues to evolve, as is demonstrated by their Sonoma Coast Chardonnay. The growth of this wine is due to the purchase of a new vineyard. Additionally, maturing vines and improved farming along with a more complex elevage all combine to provide their highest quality wine yet. Upon acquiring the Olivet Vineyard in 2011, full conversion to organic farming was implemented to ensure the highest quality of fruit. Another core blending component comes from the young vine block at Keefer Ranch,which was planted to heirloom Wente selection per Ehren’s suggestion in 2002. This cool site adds nerve and energy to the blend. The final component comes from the Floodgate Vineyard, which lies just outside of the West Sonoma County town of Guerneville. Planted on a mix of alluvial and Goldridge soils, Floodgate also complements the blend with a cool tone and fresh,snappy verve.
