Product Details

A single sip of Wente Chardonnay was enough to leave the entire tasting panel with the lasting impression that above all else, balance is central in Wente’s winemaking philosophy. When you delve into the winemaking techniques adopted this is reaffirmed; 50% of the wine is fermented in French oak while the other 50% is fermented in stainless steel tanks. It was in this balance that we found a clear winner.

Each summer morning, fog billows inland through the Golden Gate, pushed by Pacific wind streams into the bowl of the San Francisco Bay. Here, it forms deep fog banks that rest on the East Bay Hills. In just one place, the Livermore Valley, with its unique East-West orientation, the fog banks come further east, cooling the air as it goes. This daily phenomenon creates the Mediterranean or Marine climate found in less than 1% of the world's land mass and it makes the San Francisco Bay and Livermore Valley appellations ideal for growing wine grapes that are beautifully balanced.

    Great little chardonnay. Manages to achieve a great balance between oak and fruit, where the clean refreshing stone fruit flavours can still shine with the rich creaminess to accompany it. Clean acidity adds to the mix as well. A solid all rounder that goes down nicely.

    Wow, I had never tried a Californian Chardonnay before but this is one of the best I have had. Very full bodied and old school, goes down a treat!

    If you haven't gotten on board with Californian Chardonnay, well it might be time to start! Wente Morning Fog is an old-school Chardonnay lovers dream. Oak driven flavours of Apricot and other stone fruits, long, creamy and buttery mouth feel and just enough acidity to cut through at the end. This is a full bodied Chardonnay that leaves a lasting impression at a reasonable price.
