Far Niente Chardonnay Napa Valley

2019 Far Niente Chardonnay Napa Valley...$59.99
Coombsville vineyards protected by the hills east of downtown Napa are home to this Chardonnay. They’re as cool as Carneros but less windy, with deeper soils of gravel and volcanic ash, and their influence on this dignified white shows in its complex persona. A fine balance of stone fruit, acid structure, and zingy citrus creates a tangible yet delicate mouthfeel. Honeysuckle and gardenia offer significant floral tones.
Rated 95/100 Tasting Panel
Spicy oak and bright acidity complement each other in this well-made white, which shows strong tones of crisp citrus and green apple. It builds body on the midpalate, with integrated woody notes and lasting richness.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Enthusiast
