Far Niente Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
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.
Marked by rich flavors along with a streak of tangerine and nectarine notes, which cast a pithy mouthfeel that time should soften. Drink now through 2022. 28,500 cases made.
