    The grapes in this wine have been cloned from the original Wente plantings in 1969, so there is a fair bit of California history that goes into this bottle, and you can really taste it! A perfectly balanced Chardonnay, the nose is even, with notes of bright green apple, round oak, butter, lemon grass, and a curious herbaceous quality. the palate is the perfect example of a California Chardonnay with a bright acidic start, that mellows out into rounder notes of browned butter, lemon, green apple, fresh herbs, and a soft vanilla.

    This is a seriously good Chardonnay from Auteur Wines! The 2016 comes from Green Acres Vineyard, located between salt plains and metamorphic foothills within the coolest maritime valley of Carneros. This site yields mineral rich vibrancy and California sunshine. The appellation benefits from rocky, well-drained soils and signature afternoon winds. Using an old Wente clone, this chard shows off a rich texture from the high skin to juice ratio and full Malolactic fermentation. I’m not afraid to draw comparisons to Grand Cru Burgundy based on the pallet weight, density, and depth of fruit. I get aromas honeysuckle, Jasmin, beeswax and stone fruit. Amazing stuff. Hop on it.
