Had this about a year ago and wanted to see how this developed. Nickel & Nickel exclusively produces 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines that express the distinctive personality of each vineyard. Established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente. Aromas of ripe stone fruit and citrus. On the palate subtle apple, melon and pear flavors, with some lemon zest, vanilla and mineral notes. Nice round balance with tamed acidity on lingering finish, rich minerality. Nice mouthfeel, Classic, very nice! perfect now!

Minerals and hint of mint on the nose. Oak, minerals and fruit (mostly lemon) on the palette.

I don't even like Chardonnay and this was wonderful. Nice balance of acidity and smoothness. It feels rich with a tinge of sweetness.
