Ramey 'Platt' Chardonnay 2014
Not Vintage Specific
Item Number: 26500
Wine Advocate 95
"The 2014 Chardonnay Platt Vineyard has expressive pink grapefruit, warm peaches and brioche notes with hints of praline and ginger. Medium-bodied with great richness and depth in the mouth, it has a lovely creamy texture offset by a wicked backbone of freshness, finishing long with mineral and savory/yeasty layers."
Varietal Compositon 100% Chardonnay
Fermentation We press the whole clusters for delicacy. Native-yeast and full native malolactic
fermentation take place in barrel, with sur lies bâtonnage.
Aging After aging 19 months in 25% new French oak barrels (François Frères and Taransaud), this Chardonnay was fined and settled in tank following the next harvest. It was then bottled without filtration.
2014 was another classic vintage. A mild winter and spring caused an early bud break followed by consistent temperatures throughout the summer, promoting even ripening. We had ample hang time which in turn yielded intense varietal character and a rich texture.
