Made with an absence of malolactic fermentation—which retains the grape’s natural acidity—Far Niente Chardonnay’s delightfully forward fruit and bright acidity in youth gently evolve with time to a sophisticated, creamy and rich palate profile. Depending on the bottle size and with proper cellaring, Far Niente Chardonnay can be enjoyed for 5-to-10 years beyond the vintage date, and longer.
Aromas of melon, sweet citrus and white blossom floral layered with notes of flint, yeast and sweetly toasted oak. A smooth and focused entry is followed by a silky midpalate with ripe flavors of honeydew and lemon, supported by just of touch of wet stone, yeast and toasted hazelnuts. The finish is long and structured with citrus rind and mouthwatering acid.
