Far Niente Winery Napa Valley Chardonnay 2016

Much more stone-ground and mineral driven than previous vintages of this from my memory. This wine starts off with limestone and honeydew melon. More acidic. Not very rounded and perhaps a touch out of balance. However, this wine has a complexity that will continue to improve as the years go on. I definitely attribute this lack of balance to the youth of this wine.

Lemon and oak nose. Vanilla and citrus on the palate with a buttery smooth texture. A clean acid finish. This is a classic Napa chard.

Mineral and pear/apple profile. Probably great with food but by itself, a little tightly wound.

Minerally yet moderately fruit-forward with notes of apple, pear, and honey. Perfect with halibut.

Drinking the 2016 in 2018. Clear golden color. Long lasting legs. Bouquet is rich with apple and honeysuckle. Very smooth crisp flavor for a young wine. Hints of pears, apple and oak. Very nice wine for a light meal or summer afternoon.
