93Vinous / IWC

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.

...possesses a Chablis-like personality of quince, white currants, lemon oil and orange blossom notes, a wet stony minerality, medium body and crisp acids.

REGION

United States, California, Sonoma, Sonoma Coast

Sonoma Coast AVA runs from San Pablo Bay in the south to Mendocino County in the north. It includes 7,000 vineyard acres and earned AVA status in 1987. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean means it gets double the rainfall of nearby inland appellations and the ocean gives the appellation a relatively cool climate. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir can thrive in these conditions, and there are numerous producers making critically acclaimed Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
