The 2011 Chardonnay is striking. Lemon pastry white flowers and nectarine all meld together gracefully in this gorgeous totally beautiful wine. All the elements are in the right place. Sweet floral notes and a hint of peach linger on the finish. In 2011 30% of the fruit was fermented and aged in concrete eggs an approach that worked very nicely to say the least. This is a totally classy introductory level Chardonnay from Failla. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.


Winemaker's Notes:

20% young-vine Chardonnay blend was fermented and aged in concrete egg vessels. The remainder was fermented and aged for 10 months in French oak, only 15% new and barely perceptible in the finished wine's flinty nose balanced with citrusy scents of grapefruit and lime filled out with a hint of jasmine and oyster-shell. The textural contributions of the concrete-fermented lots nicely balance the wine's vibrant mouth-watering acidity. Not yet reviewed; 2010 vintage rated 99 points and 'Editors' Choice' by Wine Enthusiast.
