The Old Wente selections of Chardonnay provide great texture and perfume. The glass is full with aromas of yellow plums, honeysuckle blossoms, hazelnuts, and Meyer lemon. Quite dynamic on the palate, the wine shows breadth of flavor with mineral, tangerine, white peach, and torched meringue. The finish is long and juicy leaving staying hints of incense.

Chardonnay is the Madonna of the wine world. It expresses itself in drastically different ways depending on how you treat it and where its grown. Whether you’re headed to your country club in your mini van or indulging in Michelin-starred fare, this grape is meant for you. As the most planted white grape in the world, Chardonnay can express itself as the tart, mineral-driven style from Burgundy or the fuller bodied, oaky, and buttery style that it’s become known for in Napa. The only way to decide on which style you prefer is to taste, taste, taste!
