Peach blossoms pears and a hint of vanilla and rubber bands greet your nose. Has a taste of green apple and assorted fruit finish with a hint of burn at the back of the throat. All flavors are mild. Disappointing for a Chardonnay. Has no oak, which most don't any longer

The wine-growing is under ownership and management by the fourth and fifth generation of the Wente family. Not an exceptionally good Chardonnay. Straw yellow with aromas of stone and tropical fruits. Flavors of apple and melon with citrus zest and heavy oak. Looking for more crispness, medium finish, just ok.

Bright light yellow. Fruity nose with herbal touch. Juicy, well-balanced, simple but good value. 2015 vintage.

2 of 3 bottles were really greatly blended with buttery light sweetness and fresh grape finish. Really really liked them. The third was bland but still solid

Pretty solid value Chardonnay. Nice array of tropical notes, creamy Pineapple, hint of vanilla and spice. Very good acid on the finish.

Deliciosos olores a piña, manzana, ligera vainilla y mantequilla. Fresco. Buena relación precio / calidad

Checking this one again as I’m back on a chars kick - still delivering an honest value. Lemon notes, okay vanilla middle and a nice small tinged bite at the end. Enjoy it nice and slow!

Buttery but not over-the-top. Not too okaey either. Paired well with spicey food. Nice if you want a light chardonnay.

A very enjoyable sturdy Chard - right in the middle - not to citrusy, not to buttery bomb Oaked. Pleases the nose with a crisp green apple smell and finishes as such. Enjoy!
