Drinking Tonight - 2014 Chardonnay by Farr

Winepunker recommended - I bought, and this is the first bottle that gets opened.
Info here.

2014 Chardonnay by Farr
A young but wonderfully open and generous nose with notes of ripe grey pears, cap gun smoke, lemon grass and birch sap. This is right up my alley when it comes to Chardonnay. A lovely oak aroma in the background. Really fine. Still very young though. Give it 2-3 years.
The taste is pure and racy with notes of lemon cream, summer flowers, sweet minerals and butter cookies. A long, fresh finish with a fine acidity. Drinking great tonight with some assorted cheeses, a mature Gruyère and this wine made a celestial combination.
