2019 Far Niente – Chardonnay (750ML)
ORIGIN | California
WINEMAKER NOTES | Far Niente was founded in the Napa Valley in 1885 and flourished until it was abandoned in 1919 with the onset of Prohibition. Sixty years later, the winery was restored to historical standards and our wines helped launch the movement to place Napa Valley among the best wine regions int he world. Nearly four decades later, we dedicate our efforts to making Napa Valley Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon of uncompromised quality, and to the art of winemaking in its highest form. The 2019 vintage is the 40th Anniversary release of Far Niente Chardonnay.
Far Niente’s decades-long mastery of each intricate component of winemaking—from unparalleled Napa Valley vineyards to precision harvesting and vinification—makes this winery the pinnacle in luxury Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Refined and sophisticated with a consistent house-style, every Far Niente wine offers the highest expression of its vineyards and vintage, from our iconic Napa Valley Chardonnay to our legendary Cabernet Sauvignon.
TASTING NOTES | Classically beautiful, the 2019 vintage opens with aromas of honeysuckle, white peach blossom and citrus zest, along with soft accents of vanilla. Silky stone fruit, lemon curd and honeydew flavors flow across the round, full palate, with lightly toasted oak, cool minerality and a lingering citrus note adding texture and depth. From its alluring perfume and pure fruit flavors to the graceful finish, this elegant Napa Valley Chardonnay captivates the senses.
Far Niente Chardonnay is a blend of superlative Napa Valley vineyards located in 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 have long been associated with Far Niente Chardonnay.
