Natalie's Score: 88/100
A luscious, full-bodied Chardonnay with generous aromas of white peach, toasty oak and almonds. A lovely long finish makes you long for more. Perfect for dinner parties and more casual get-togethers.
Chardonnay food pairings: grilled maple glazed salmon, chicken picatta, seafood pasta with saffron cream sauce, roasted pork tenderloin with apple chutney.

|Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
The 2011 Wente Morning Fog Chardonnay, of which 50% was aged in French, American, and Eastern European oak for 7 months, was imparted with intense and captivating aromas of sweet vanilla, creamy butter, pear, gooseberry and subtle oak. It is an off-dry, medium bodied, fruity to integrated wine, with good acidity, subtle tannins and a long and smooth finish. Due to its intense fruit and good acidity, this wine is food friendly, yet can be enjoyed by itself; drink while young before the fruit integrates or age for the next 10+ years (cork enclosure). My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 pts – recommended for its quality and excellent value. STOCK UP!! Tasted at Churchill Cellars Portfolio tasting May/13.

|Mark Donaldson reviewed this wine as follows:|
There's a rather serious current of lemon acidity that runs beneath the fruit, oak and spice. This makes it a great food wine. It works well with things like barbecue ribs, Churrasco chicken (or Swiss Chalet), Hawaiian Pizza or grown-up Mac n' cheese.
|Enjoy aromas and flavours 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.|
