Far Niente - Chardonnay 2020
Far Niente Description
Richly aromatic with notes of white fig, and citrus blossom, this captivating Chardonnay slowly builds on the palate, progressing from silky notes of honeydew, nectarine and lemon zest to a full finish supported by elegant, toasted oak. Crisp minerality and juicy acidity lift and support the generous fruit and provide the framework for graceful aging. This wine will continue to gain richness and complexity in the bottle and glass
Wine Advocate: 91 Points
Blended from vineyards in Coombsville, Jameson Canyon, Carneros and Yountville, the 2020 Chardonnay Estate is largely fermented in wood, with about 50% new French oak utilized. To retain freshness, about a fifth of the wine went into stainless-steel barrels and malolactic fermentation was blocked. It's a pretty, fruit-driven wine, with notes of apple, pear, melon and pineapple, but also full-bodied, creamy in texture and generous on the mid-palate but bright and vibrant on the finish.
