This wine is a non-traditional California Chardonnay, made in the new world with a Chablis style in mind. The Wente clone originated in California and produces a modern style of wine that has become one of America's favorite.
The 2019 Estate Wente Chardonnay comes from our estate vineyard along the Napa River. Grapes at this vineyard benefit from sandy, well-drained soil. They are protected by extended early morning fog and ripen slowly, thereby developing complex flavors.
Although made in a new world style, this wine exhibits classic Chablis characteristics that can drink now until 2022.
