PLACT 2018 Chardonnay
North Coast, California
Rick Mirer '93
Parr Vineyard is located in the North Coast Appellation of Knights Valley. The location, with its ideal soils and climate, makes for a perfect area to grow Chardonnay.
Nestled in the remote Sonoma mountains and influenced by Mt. St. Helena, the days are warm and the nights are cool. The Vineyard is a very cool and foggy site that ripens the grapes slowly with racy acidity. The soil is comprised of sandy loam - perfect for Chardonnay.
Color: bright, shiny yellow gold with touches of mercury on the rim
On the nose: explosion of toasted brioche, pear, banana, apricot and quince paste with creme brulee, citrus blossom, and orange peel
On the palate: round entrance evolving on a fresh mid-palate with touches of caramel and lemon yogurt, lingering on a beautiful acidity"
