2022 Faîte De Mer Farm 'Radiolaria' Chardonnay

Add To Cart
$60.00 per Bottle

Our  coastal estate site produces a mouthwatering, mineral and citrus driven Chardonnay that is lively, elegant and delicious.  Honeysuckle, lemon curd and flint are in the forefront along with a hint of wild herb and a slight saline note on the long lively finish.  Leaner than the 2021 estate Chardonnay, the 2022 vintage combines colder than average temps and very low yields to produce a taut Chardonnay with incredible balance and persistence. We combine three soils series of ocean floor origins, planted to Dijon 548, Wente and Dijon 76. These sandstone based soils contain deep sea bed rock called radiolarian chert which is formed from deep sea plankton that dropped onto the seafloor millions of years ago and then was pushed and scraped up as part of the formation of our Mendocino Coast Ridges.  Don't miss this one.
