The 2021 Far Niente Chardonnay is packed and alive on the palate. This wine shines with aromas and flavors of ripe apples, oaky notes, and hints of earth. Pair it with panko-crusted, pan-fried Petrale sole.
Bright and lively, the 2021 vintage opens with aromas of lemon zest, kumquat, toasted almonds, hint of wet stone and flint, 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.
