The 2018 Failla Sonoma Coast Chardonnay has a bright, fruity core of pineapple, citrus, and apricot that brings mouthwatering freshness and remains unimpeded by just a kiss of restrained oak. This is honest Chardonnay with great purity and perfect balance. Roughly 75% of the grapes used in this bottling are estate grown and farmed.

Appellation: Sonoma Coast AVA

"The 2018 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is a gorgeous appellation-level wine. Bright and finely cut, the 2018 is a white of energy and cut, both of which come through loud and clear. Lemon peel, mint, almonds, white flowers and crushed rocks are all beautifully sculpted throughout. This is such a classy wine, but it will be better with a bit more time in bottle." -AG, Apr/2020

"The 2018 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast has open-knit aromas of honeysuckle, baked apples and spicy touches. The medium-bodied palate is savory with honeyed fruits and an uplifted, very juicy finish. 2,500 cases produced." -EB, 9/24/20
