Notes: The 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 & lured inland by Livermore Valley’s unique East-West orientation. Recognized as “California’s First Family of Chardonnay”, the Wente family was the first in California to produce a varietally labeled Chardonnay in 1936 made from their heritage ‘Wente’ clones.

This, our bestselling Chardonnay bursts with aromatics from citrus, lemon curd, pear & toasty oak. Balanced by hints of vanilla & citrus on the palate, finishing with a nice acidity & creamy body. 50% fermented in oak & 50% in stainless steel followed by 5 months maturation of each respectively.

Morning Fog Chardonnay is an great expression of Livermore Valley Chardonnay, with diverse alluvial fans of soil consistently creating Chardonnay with beautiful and lingering minerality, which coupled with the natural acidity from the long and cool growing season, creates a beautiful wine

 

Producer Info: Founded in 1883, Wente Vineyards is the oldest continuously operated, family-owned winery in America. Today the estate is comprised of vineyards in the Livermore Valley, San Francisco & Arroyo Seco appellations & is operated by the fourth & fifth generations of the family. 5th Generation winegrower Karl D. Wente has continued the family’s legacy with the Wente clone by using it to produce four different styles of Chardonnay including our personal favourite; Morning Fog Chardonnay. Today, an incredible 80% of all Californian Chardonnay stems from this original clone.

Wente ‘estate grown wines’ are named after the unique growing conditions of the estate vineyards from which they are sourced. These wines include Morning Fog Chardonnay, Sandstone Merlot & Riverbank Riesling. ‘Single vineyard wines’ are grown in specific vineyard blocks which are named after the pioneers who were closely involved in the history of the company’s winemaking tradition. They include Riva Ranch Chardonnay, Riva Ranch Pinot Noir & Charles Wetmore Cabernet Sauvignon.
