The 2012 vintage offers lively aromas of lemon and lime citrus zest, honeydew melon, wet stone and honeysuckle blossom. Bright upon entry with a silky texture through the mid-palate, this wine is focused and long with citrus and mineral flavors supported by integrated notes of oak. The finish is clean and refreshing. - WineryFermentation: 100% barrel; No MLAging: 9 months sur lie in French oak (61% new, 39% once-used)

Sourced from Coomsville, a cooler sub-appellation of Napa Valley, Far Niente Chardonnay has bright crisp citrus fruit character, and moderate French Oak influence.


Winemaker's Notes:

Far Niente Chardonnay is a blend of superlative Napa Valley vineyards, many of which are located in a little-known area called Coombsville, a cool growing region nestled in the rolling countryside and protected by the hills east of the city of Napa. Coombsville offers the characteristic climate of Carneros, with less wind, along with deeper, well-drained gravelly loam and volcanic ash soils. The combination of these spectacular vineyards results in the subtle, tropical flavors, complex aromas and uncommon richness that we have long associated with Far Niente Chardonnay.
