"Not many producers get fruit from this magical vineyard, sought after for
being cool, coastal and meticulously farmed. This wine speaks to all that,
offering sublime Meyer lemon, pear and golden honey around a balanced
soul and wild ginger-infused intensity" –July 2015
The Platt Vineyard is Ramey's coolest site, producing wine that is more focused and mineral driven than fruit driven. Grapes are whole-cluster pressed; Native-yeast and full native malolactic fermentation take place in barrel, with sur lies bâtonnage. After aging 18 months in 1/3 new French oak barrels, this Chardonnay was fined and settled in tank following the next harvest. It was then bottled without filtration.
