Im@not a huge fan of Chardonnay but honestly, I really like this one! It's not dry, it's just sweet enough without being too sweet.

Consumer friendly Chard. Medium-bodied with a creamy texture and loads of slightly smoked pineapple, coconut, butter, and nut notes.,

Heavy oak. Chard that would pair beautifully with mild cheeses and antipasto

Aromas of citrus fruits & green apple; a crisp mouthfeel with a finish that bursts of lemon. Light oaky-vanilla develops as the bottle opens up. A tiny tinge of sweetness; must be from the 2% Gewürztraminer added.
Paired this with a Chicken and artichoke dish - and was spot on. Alcohol 13.5% $15 retail 98% Chardonnay 2% Gewürztraminer (sample)

Wente Vineyards 2013 Morning Fog Chardonnay. Slightly toasty on the nose and palate. You know it has been Oaked slightly.
