Definite cream and butteriness here on the nose and a bit of toast brings on a very soft mouthfeel that is smooth on the finish...easy drinking and big enough to stand up to some food!

I am not a white wine lover. That being said, I really loved this wine. Creamy, buttery, and a heavenly nose of crisp apple made me want to drink down the whole bottle.

Classically-styled and easy to drink, this is the perfect "whenever" wine. Loaded with toasty almond, melon and starfruit flavors; pairs easily with many chicken, pasta and pork dishes.

A fairly rich Chardonnay whose creamy texture holds fruit-forward, smoky flavors of baked apples, grilled pineapples, vanilla, butterscotch, and dusty Asian spices.

Wente is well known for its Wente clone, a popular sight in many a California Chardonnay vineyard. This flavorful example is compellingly rich and textured, yet modest in alcohol, with a happy apple, melon taste and a bit of an exotic lift on the finish, possibly from the 2% Gewürztraminer that's blended in.

Shows lots of sophistication at a good price. Brimming with ripe peach and mango fruit, there's a richer streak of butter-sautéed banana, finishing with caramelized honey. The wine is quite dry, even minerally, and modest in alcohol, only 13.5%.

Enjoy aromas and flavors of green apple and tropical fruits, balanced by subtle oak, cinnamon and vanilla from barrel aging. With a mouth-filling body and balanced acidity, this wine delivers a medium-long, refreshing finish.

This 2004 Chardonnay is a great example of the Livermore Valley terroir. The red apple fruit and medium acidity from the grape balanced with the graham cracker oak and a slight buttery finish bring together the best of both worlds, in terms of ways to craft Chardonnay.

I like everything about this wine. Peaches, pineapples, vanilla custard and buttered toast flavors, crisp acids, a creamy, oaky veneer, a nice, long dry finish - it's all there. It doesn't have the concentrated intensity of greater wines, but it's very nice.
