New product

Aromas of citrus, melon and honeysuckle complement hints of white fig, gardenia and toasted hazelnuts on a background of mild toasted oak that adds supportive warmth and richness. A silky palate with a rich texture surrounds a sweet core of melon and citrus, with notes of white floral and toasted vanilla and spice, through to a long bright finish.

More info

Far Niente Chardonnay is a blend of superlative Napa Valley vineyards, many of which are located in a little-known area called 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, welldrained gravelly loam and volcanic ash soils. The combination of these vineyards results in the subtle, tropical flavours, complex aromas and rich texture.

The grapes were brought to the winery in small bins and sorted by hand to assure the finest quality. Fermentation began in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and 89% was racked into French oak barrels to complete fermentation in the caves and old stone cellars. The wine did not go through malolactic conversion and was aged for 10 months on its fine lees for additional depth, complexity and texture. The maturation took place in French oak barrels (52% new, 48% used once).
