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.




Natalie's Review

Wente Vineyards Morning Fog Chardonnay 2010, Livermore, California, United States: 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. Drink: 2012-2015. 175430 13.50% D 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 88/100.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
