Wine Description

(From «nv» Vintage)

Aromas of Meyer lemon, toasted nuts and fig are supported by the underlying sweetness of honeysuckle. The entry is honeyed with ripe citrus, light melon and well-integrated nuttiness and a touch of mineral. A rich, full midpalate with balanced acidity draws out into a long finish. 

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2013 Vintage) 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.

    Not overly oaky or buttery but still layered and substantial.

    (From 2004 Vintage) Medium yellow, gold in color with tinges of green, this wine features a lovely bouquet of ripe apple, lemon, fig, flowers and faint hints of vanilla. Full-bodied and richly textured, the palate open...

    (From 2007 Vintage) Aromas of melon, guava and ripe fig are layered with toasty spices that resemble hazelnut and clove. Upon entry, this wine is round and creamy on the palate brings forth a tropical minerality that balances a spicy, toasty finish.
