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.

Bright and lively, the 2021 vintage opens with aromas of lemon zest, kumquat, toasted almonds, a hint of wet stone and flint, and light fresh-cut herbs. This wine immediately enchants with a silky entry and vibrant flavors of grilled citrus, light green melon, and toasted oak that expand across the mid-palate all the way until the finish.
