It’s Fall, but sometimes you just aren’t ready to give up your white wine just yet! The best wines for the autumn are the wines that offer some cinnamon or vanilla notes, and that is what the Wente Morning Fog 2013 Chardonnay offers. The Wente winemaker notes on wine.com states,
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.
A little oaky, but definitely full-bodied and refreshing, this Wente Morning Fog 2013 Chardonnay is very enjoyable especially for the price point.
Chardonnays pair well with chicken and shellfish; if you’re pairing with cheeses, go for the gruyere or provolone.
I’m picky about my Chardonnays, and this Wente Chardonnay, in my opinion, is very nice. I would probably rate it close to the actual Vivino score, but a tad higher at 3.9/5. Go enjoy your white wine this Fall and have a great Wine Wednesday!
