Ramey Wine Cellars Platt Vineyard Chardonnay 2012

$59.99

A great new Chardonnay release from Ramey. Limited. 95 Points Wine Enthusiast: "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." 93 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2012 Chardonnay Platt Vineyard wraps around the palate with gorgeous texture and pure resonance. Inviting and layered from start to finish, the Platt impresses for its balance and overall harmony. The flavors are bright, energetic and focused throughout. Lemon peel, white flowers and white pepper all add lift on the expressive finish."

Fuller bodied offering from this awesome vineyard, great viscosity and mouthfeel without being overbearing or bashful. Oak is well incorporated but lemon and citrus fruit still has presence

Mouthfilling. Full bodied is an understatement. Bright fruit, more fruit, some more fruit...lemon. Will come back to the other bottle in 2022.

"The 2011 Chardonnay Platt Vineyard is direct and focused in style. Butter, pastry, citrus and sweet spices are some of the nuances that come alive in the glass. Because of its proximity to the Pacific and the cool vintage, the Platt is a bit compact and tightly wound at this stage... Wild flowers, almonds and mint are layered into the finish. There is a lot to look forward to here." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2014 We use classical Burgundian techniques with the addition of whole cluster pressing. All of our Chardonnays go through native yeast fermentation in three-year air dried French and Hungarian oak barrels and then native, delayed malolactic fermentation. The Platt is aged sur lies for 20 months in barrel, and then is lightly fined with traditional fining agents before being bottled without filtration.
