$49.99

Delicious new Chardonnay release from Far Niente's single vineyard Nickel & Nickel winery. Only 250 cases produced. With fragrant orange blossom and floral aromas, juicy tropical fruit and pear top notes, and a subtle minerality, the Nickel & Nickel Truchard Vineyard Chardonnay continues our tradition of crafting 100%-varietal wines from outstanding single-vineyard sites. It's a cornerstone of our single-vineyard Chardonnay collection. The Truchard Vineyard in Napa Valley’s Carneros region benefits from beautiful sun exposure and cool morning and evening fog. Stiling and Medina Vineyards are each located in Russian River Valley, just a half-mile apart. Both vineyards are planted in Goldridge loam and yield distinct wines with classic minerality and fresh fruit flavors that help make some of the best chardonnays including this classic from Nickel & Nickel.

Nickel & Nickel exclusively produces 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines that express the distinctive personality of each vineyard. Established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente. Aromas of tropical and stone fruit with citrus notes. On the palate apple, pear and peach flavors, with some lemon zest, vanilla and wet stone notes. Nice balance with tangy acidity on long finish ending with rich minerality. Classic, very nice!

Lovely, beautiful purity of fruit and no oak/vanillin getting in the way.

Very good! Not as bright and clear as some other options from N&N but still excellent. More citrus.

Damn Skippy that's a nice Chardonnay. Notes of citrus but without the heavy acidity. Lemon, pear and just enough softness to provide balance.

Vintage 2018 that offers plenty of tropical fruits and citrus in the glass. Pear and white plum, peaches with medium acidity and weight. I'm going to give the rest of this another year and see how it matures.
