Wente Vineyards Chardonnay Morning Fog 2014

Sku: 018746

Tasting notes
Enjoy the beautiful straw color and aromas of freshly cut red apple, vanilla andwell-integrated oak. There are also enticing aromas of tropical and citrus fruit. The predominant flavors are clean, tart apple with toasty graham and subtle oak. This Chardonnay has a mouth-filling body with a medium-long finish that is very refreshing.

Wine maker notes
Since 1883, five generations of our family have handcrafted fine wines that express the very best of our vineyards and winemaking expertise. Our Estate Grown Morning Fog Chardonnay is named for the morning coastal fog pushed by Pacific wind streams into the bowl of the San Francisco Bay, and lured inland by Livermore Valley’s unique East-West orientation. This daily phenomenon moderates the climate to produce excellent, beautifully balanced Chardonnay. Planted on various Wente clones, which are all harvested and vinified separately, the variation within the vineyards adds to the complexity of the wine. Recognized as “California’s First Family of Chardonnay”, our family was the first in California to produce a varietally labeled Chardonnay made from our Wente clone. Today, many of the great Chardonnay vineyards in California are planted with the Wente clone, which originated from our family’s estate.

Technical notes
Fermentation: At least 50% barrel fermented in French oak, and 50% fermented in stainless steel tanks in order to preserve the natural fruit flavors inherent in our Livermore Valley Chardonnay. Aging: The barrel fermented portion was aged sur lie for 9 months. Batonnage, the art of stirring the barrels, was performed monthly. The stainless steel portion was aged on lees for 9 months.
