Users Who Logged This Wine

The wine had a beautiful straw color to it. The wine had hint of vanilla, toasted nuts and buttery flavors. The wine would have been a little better with a little less oak but time will tell.

Vineyard notes:
Wine Color: White

Vintage: 2007

Varietals: 100% Chardonnay

Appellation: Livermore, San Francisco Bay

Winemaker: Karl D. Wente

Alcohol: 14.1%

PH: 3.52

Vineyard:

This Chardonnay comes from vineyards that were farmed to The Nth Degree. Each vine received at least 15 passes whereby leaves, shoots, and clusters were removed to ensure that the only clusters that remained were of the highest quality. The water was managed so that the vines were perfectly balanced with the correct amount of growth to fully ripen the berries for the optimal level of flavor. The grapes were hand-harvested into halfton bins in the early morning.

Fermentation:

The blend was barrel fermented in a combination of French, American, European, and neutral oak.

Aging:

This Chardonnay was aged for 16 months in a combination of French, American, European, and neutral oak.
