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 tropical and stone fruit with citrus notes. On the palate apple, pear and peach flavors, with some lemon zest, vanilla and wet stone notes. Nice balance with tangy acidity on long finish ending with rich minerality. Classic, very nice!

This is a really nice showing, but there’s no mid palate, no acidity, no gravel, wet stone, bright citrus. just nothing of that nature.

Lovely, beautiful purity of fruit and no oak/vanillin getting in the way.

Very good! Not as bright and clear as some other options from N&N but still excellent. More citrus.

Damn Skippy that's a nice Chardonnay. Notes of citrus but without the heavy acidity. Lemon, pear and just enough softness to provide balance.
