2017 FAR NIENTE “NAPA VALLEY” CHARDONNAY
When making a list of Napa Valley’s most paradigmatic and historically significant Chardonnay producers, the name Far Niente is carved in stone, quite literally. The winery was established in 1885 and prospered until prohibition in 1919. In 1979 wine country pioneer Gil Nickel purchased the Estate and during the three year restoration, the name Far Niente was found carved in stone in front of the winery where it still remains today. Nearly forty years later, their Chardonnay is considered by many to be a Benchmark for Napa Valley Chardonnay. I’ve enjoyed their Chardonnay for years and for me the 2017 stands out for it’s remarkable balance, penetrating fruit and brilliant details.
Composed from superlative vineyard sources located in Napa Valley’s idyllic Coombsville region, the 2017 Chardonnay holds true to the Far Niente style of rich opulence and lavish detail. It reveals mystical elements that come with finely laced tropical notes, liquid floral and toasted almond. Fans of top-quality California Chardonnay shouldn’t miss this stunning release.
