The 2013 Far Niente Chardonnay offers tropical aromas of citrus and melon
layered with honeysuckle, perfume and toasted oak. A juicy entry transitions
to a vibrant, yet oily, palate, which builds to a clean and refreshing finish.
This wine is well-integrated and beautifully concentrated, with lush citrus
flavors and hints of minerality.
Far Niente Chardonnay is a blend of superlative Napa Valley vineyards,
located in Coombsville, a cool growing region nestled in the rolling
countryside and protected by the hills east of the city of Napa. Coombsville
offers the characteristic climate of Carneros, with less wind, along with deeper,
well-drained gravelly loam and volcanic ash soils. The combination of these
spectacular vineyards results in the subtle, tropical flavors, complex aromas and
uncommon richness that have long been associated with Far Niente Chardonnay.
