Winemaker's Notes

The Chardonnay is a classically structured wine that is both rich and velvety on the palate while displaying the typical intensity of fruit and spicy oak aromas that have become synonymous with Far Niente Chardonnay.

The 2000 Far Niente Chardonnay has excellent potential to age ten or more years.
