"The 2015 Chardonnay Estate Vineyard is a wine where so many Failla signatures come together. The marginal characteristics of this coastal Sonoma site balance some of the richer qualities of the year. Orange peel, smoke, butter and tangerine fill out the wine's frame effortlessly. The Estate is the most overt and viscous Chardonnay in the range, but it also has the lowest alcohol, once again showing that wine is about much more than numbers alone."

Failla

The Gualala Ranch Estate property was planted in 1998 and is dry-farmed organically. Sitting at 1400ft. elevation just 5 miles east of the Pacific Ocean,this 90 acre parcel is planted to 11 acres of vineyard,with just over 2.5 to Chardonnay.

The 2015 Vintage at the Estate was 30% smaller than the previous year’s harvest. A late cool spring led to a very small crop set, while the heat of Summer gave it one of Failla's earliest harvests. Beautifully clean fruit was harvested August 25th.
