Far Niente Napa Valley Chardonnay 2019
Far Niente Napa Valley Chardonnay has flavor and personality to spare, beautiful citrus and melon notes, a soupcon of honeysuckle, and even a pinch of minerality as you approach its refreshing and rewarding finish. Your first glass can't go down any easier if you've got it next to a crock of salmon rillettes flecked with chives accompanied by lots of toasted baguette slices. One of our go-to comfort food recipes for this Far Niente is chicken roasted with tangerines, garlic, rosemary, white wine and honey. It's like the wine was made for the dish, or the other way around. The oak in the wine makes grilled lobster with brown butter for dipping a no-brainer. If you need a brunch plan, then make it an asparagus and fingerling frittata. What's your plan, winelovers? Winery
: "Aromas of melon, sweet citrus and white blossom floral layered with notes of flint, yeast and sweetly toasted oak. A smooth and focused entry is followed by a silky midpalate with ripe flavors of honeydew and lemon, supported by just a touch of wet stone, yeast and toasted hazelnuts. The finish is long and structured with citrus rind and mouthwatering acid."
