The renowned Wente clone--known for its texture, richness, and balance--is the star of Char Vale’s Chardonnay from Carneros. The 2015 vintage is a soft, spun gold color, opening into light aromas of freshly-picked apple and pear, scented with vanilla. A sumptuous mouthfeel evokes characteristics of Asian pear and baked Gravenstein apple pie, complemented by subtle hints of oak and brioche.
