I was also impressed by the 2011 Chardonnay Platt Vineyard. Cropped at one ton of fruit per acre (Ramey told me the grapes looked like petits pois from France), and from one of the coldest sites in his portfolio, it exhibits lively notes of lemon oil, lime skins, white peaches and a touch of honey. This fresh, medium-bodied, concentrated 2011 should drink well for 4-5 years.

More Info

A new vineyard designation for us, Platt was planted in 2003 with first crop in 2006; the young-vine production has been going into our Sonoma Coast appellation bottling. At seven years of age the vines were old enough to make a wine of sufficient density and concentration to merit singling out. Planted to the Wente selection collected from one of our Hyde Vineyard blocks, the rows are densely planted (3? and 4? by 6?) on low-vigor rootstock (420A). Located five miles from the Pacific off Bodega Highway, midway between Sebastopol and Bodega Bay, the vineyard sits at 800? on a south-facing slope overlooking the Estero Americano (which funnels cooling marine weather to the Sacramento delta via the Petaluma Gap). This Chardonnay ripens two weeks later than our Russian River Chardonnays, with a lower pH, and the crisp acidity and minerality from this cool site are quite apparent in the wine.
