90% bf, 10% SS, eight months sur lie, two to three perfect gewurztraminer Big woody spice and lots of vanilla greets the nose along with rich pineapple, a little nutmeg, and subtle backing notes of tropical fruits. In the mouth this is fairly rich and very true to the nose with powerful flavors dripping in peachy, pineapple, spicy tropical fruit flavors all backed up with vanilla, a touch of red flowers, and wood spice. Good acids keep this fresh and lead to a clean finish, with just a hint of tannin adding some textural complexity. A nice blend of powerful fruit and the structure to keep it refreshing in the mouth. 88pts

A crowd-pleasing Chardonnay from Wente, working in the Monterey area, the result all caramel, vanilla and lemon-lime with a sweet tropical chaser on the finish. The oak is subtle. This wine will pair deliciously with a range of food, particularly chicken and seafood.
