About The Wine

 

The inaugural vintage of the Favia “Carbone” Chardonnay has quickly become Annie and Andy's “house white,” a constant favorite at the table when gathering with friends and family. Produced from thirty-year-old vines planted just behind their historic winery in Coombsville, this wine possesses all of the energy, purity and freshness that this noble variety has to offer when it is at its best.

 
With a pale lemon hue glinting with gold on the meniscus, the nose runs the gamut from white-petaled flowers, apples and pears, to citrus peel, piecrust and clotted cream. The palate is replete with notes of lemon curd, tarte Tatin, marzipan and just a hint of fennel. Its creamy texture is balanced with bright acid and lingers on the finish to create full-bodied yet refreshing experience.
 
This wine will continue to unfold and gain complexity with time in the bottle. The only problem is that it’s so inviting today, we might never see that time come!
