Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2016 vintage opens with bright melon, citrus blossom and honeysuckle aromatics, followed by notes of lightly toasted hazelnuts and an amazing minerality. Rounded and silky on the palate, flavors of ripe melon and citrus oil are underscored by juicy fruit and mouthwatering acidity. Subtle toasted oak notes and a hint of anise spice add warmth and richness to the long, focused 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.
