Winemaker Notes

This unoaked Chardonnay is a favored style of Fourth Generation Winegrower, Eric Wente. It is clear and bright with medium weight, intriguing minerality and a touch of creaminess. This wine exhibits aromas of green apple, lemon citrus, white peach and pineapple with hints of jasmine and mandarin orange. An excellent balance between fruit and acidity make this wine refreshing and food friendly.

Tasting Panel

Small-lot estate-grown fruit creates pizzazz in the glass. This energetic, creamy white offers fragrances of magnolia blossom, lilac, McIntosh apple, and vanilla bean; mirroring the aroma, the taste profile is extroverted and gregarious with a range of food. I love the weightiness with a finish of white tea and flower petal tannins. Aged sur lie for four months in stainless steel tanks.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This is a very good example of an unoaked Chardonnay. It has lots of zingy fresh-fruit aromas, lively citrus and green-apple flavors and good supportive acidity to keep the mouthfeel tangy. Winemaker Karl Wente made this one to please his no-frills dad, Eric Wente.
