Far Niente Chardonnay 2018
|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.
Rich and juicy, with oaky accents to the dried apple and glazed apricot flavors. The well-structured finish is filled with savory and buttery notes. Drink now through 2023.
