Far Niente Winery Napa Valley Chardonnay 2015

$59.99

Far Niente makes one of Napa Valley's classic Chardonnays and the 2015 has just been released! The Far Niente 2015 Estate Chardonnay Napa Vallley offers up a bevy of aromas of melon, hazelnut, citrus, fig and spice are complimented by toasty notes in the nose. The palate offers a full entry with floral notes that lead through layers of fruit that give structure and complexity. The length and balance are impressive as they lead to a mouth watering finish. Far Niente Chardonnay is a careful blend of estate vineyards that grow in the cooler southern areas of the Napa Valley. Once winemaker Stephanie Putnam determined when to pick each block, the grapes were hand picked, sorted, pressed and then the juice was settled. Fermentation in french oak barrels usually lasts about three weeks and then the wine is aged on its yeast for another 8-9 months before the final blend is determined.

Fresh tropical fruit and melon on the nose. Silky smooth over the palate with hints of nut and melon. Well balanced.

Oak. But not too buttery. Nice balance of acidity. Medium to heavy body. Rich. But again the acid makes it not too heavy. A little vanilla and pear. Katie loves it.
