De Loach Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2013 (1x 75cl)

Enticing aromas of citrus and melon invite you to explore further. On the palate, bright acidity is touched with a delicate oak influence, with flavours of lime and lemon mingled with tart apple. This medium bodied wine spreads slowly across your palate towards a brilliant finish of creamy vanilla.

Hess Monterey Chardonnay 2015 (1x75cl)

Tropical aromas and flavours are highlighted with traditional Central Coast notes of lemon and lime zest and a touch of apple.

J Lohr Estates Riverstone Chardonnay 2016 (1x 75cl)

A very youthful straw yellow color. The aromas are of ripe bosc pear, fuji apple, lime and honeysuckle combined with the perfumed vanilla and a toasty oak bouquet. The flavors are very clean with ripe pear, subtle floral notes and vanilla toastiness, producing layers of complexity with an excellent balance of fresh fruit acidity and palate-weight.

Wente Morning Fog Chardonnay 2015 (1x75cl)

The forthcoming 2016 vintage has been awarded 92 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their September 2017 edition review of Top 40 Californian Wines Under £40 (see blue link below). Alas, the 2016 has yet to land in the UK - it will appear here immediately it does - but, having extensively tasted the 2015, we highly recommend it.

Wente Morning Fog Chardonnay 2016 - Sept 2017 Decanter review

The Morning Fog Chardonnay is named for the morning coastal fog pushed by Pacific wind streams into the bowl of the San Francisco Bay and lured inland by Livermore Valley’s unique East-West orientation. This daily phenomenon moderates the climate to produce excellent, beautifully balanced Chardonnay.

Planted on various Wente clones, each vineyard block is farmed and harvested separately which maximizes quality and adds an elegant complexity to the wine. Nearly 80% of the Chardonnay vineyards in California are planted with the Wente clone. An almost microscopic proportion - less then 2% - of Gewurztraminer is also used.

This wine is fermented in 50% neutral American oak barrels and 50% in stainless steel tanks. The oak provides hints of vanilla and enhances the mouthfeel; the steel preserves the naturally vibrant fruit flavors inherent in this Chardonnay. The barrel fermented portion was aged sur lie (on its lees/fermenting yeast) for 5 months; batonnage, the art of stirring the barrels, was performed monthly. This adds a creamy note to the wine and greatly enhances the texture. From the remaining 50% stainless steel portion, half was aged on its lees for 5 months, while the other half was racked clean to preserve the fresh fruit character.

Bright, crisp flavors of pear, melon, citrus and green apple are balanced by subtle hints of toasty oak and vanilla from the barrel aging. With mouth-filling body, lingering minerality and balanced acidity, this wine delivers a long, refreshing finish.
