“UNADULTERATED” Chardonnay by (former) Turley’s Winemaker

The 2017 Failla Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is sourced from the Olivet, Keefer Ranch and Flood Gate vineyards. The Fruit is whole-cluster-pressed into 20% Concrete Egg, 10% New French Oak, 15% Foudre, 5% Amphora, 20% Stainless Steel, and 30% Neutral Puncheon.  Ehren Jordan uses native yeasts for primary fermentation, and the wine naturally completes malolactic fermentation. The wine rests sur lie for 9 months before bottling. The wine is brooding, intense, elegant and deeply textural. Offering up style and grace and will provide years of growing, fascinating complexity. An incredible reminder of how precious the relationships between the vineyards are

The 2017 Failla Chardonnay Sonoma Coast is a beautiful, medium-bodied, charming effort that’s loaded with notions of apple blossom, honeysuckle, spice, and just a touch of minerality. It has terrific purity of fruit and is a gem of a wine to enjoy over the coming 4-6 years or so. It’s also a great introduction to the style of the estate.

Winemaker Notes: With its spine of sappy brightness and crystalline salinity, this wine displays all the dense, bright, and savory appeal of the Sonoma Coast. At once textural and filigreed, this is a laser-focused expression showing citrus, coastal bay and textural depth to carry the mid-palate to a refreshing finish.
