The Chardonnay by Farr comes from the same site as the Sangreal Pinot Noir. It’s an exposed, hungry north-facing slope of red soil over limestone, planted in 1994. The fruit is picked by hand and whole-bunch pressed. All the solids are collected and chilled before being put to French oak barrels (30% new). A natural fermentation occurs over the next two to three weeks at cool temperatures. After fermentation, a bit of stirring helps start malolactic fermentation.
Gorgeous, integrated nose of classy oak over white peach, fresh pineapple and lemon, with grilled nuts. Immediately revs with power and verve on the palate. Medium-bodied, slippery textured, sleek, oak there but in lovely balance. Very good, integrated length and immediately ready to return for another sip. NICK FARR
