Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
In timeless Far Niente style, the 2018 opens with a citrus-honeysuckle perfume, accented with notes of white fig, gardenia and warm toasted oak. The palate is silky and layered with melon and citrus flavors along with hints of toasted vanilla and baking spices and a long, bright finish.
Vineyard Notes
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.
