A big, lush Chardonnay from the Wente family's Ernest Wente Vineyard, this is barrel fermented and aged on lees for a long 18 months in new American and French oak. A successful layering of ripe apples, a tinge of pineapple and hearty bread with tons of texture and length made in an opulent California style.
