Winemaker Notes

The 2019 vintage is the 40th Anniversary release of Far Niente Chardonnay.

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

Critical Acclaim

TP95 Tasting Panel
Coombsville vineyards protected by the hills east of downtown Napa are home to this Chardonnay. They’re as cool as Carneros but less windy, with deeper soils of gravel and volcanic ash, and their influence on this dignified white shows in its complex persona. A fine balance of stone fruit, acid structure, and zingy citrus creates a tangible yet delicate mouthfeel. Honeysuckle and gardenia offer significant floral tones.
WE94 Wine Enthusiast
Spicy oak and bright acidity complement each other in this well-made white, which shows strong tones of crisp citrus and green apple. It builds body on the midpalate, with integrated woody notes and lasting richness.
The 2019 Far Niente Chardonnay packs satisfaction and style on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with its attractive aromas and flavors of ripe fruit and oak. Pair it with grilled halibut in a savory, cream sauce. (Tasted: February 27, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
