2015 Old Wente Chardonnay

Price: $55.00

To craft this release, we isolate the Old Wente clone from blocks on both the Quail Hill and Susannas estate vineyard sites. Considered the grandfather clone of California Chardonnay, Old Wente displays gorgeous intensity and focused acidity on each of these cool properties. A vivid golden hue in the glass, look for bright aromas of Gravenstein apple, lemongrass, crushed flint, brioche and vanilla bean. The focused entry is marked by bright acidity and vivid notes of lime zest tempered by lemon balm and pie crust. The acidity carries through into the long finish, with a final reverberation of vanilla bean. Drink upon release through 2023.

The Monastery release brings together three Chardonnay clones: Calera from Quail Hill Vineyard, and Old Wente and Mt. Eden from Susannas Vineyard. This intriguing blend of dynamic clones produces a clear gold color in the glass with lively aromas of jasmine flower, tangerine, kiwi and hints of flint. Bright acidity on the palate gives way to notes of grapefruit, lemon-lime and honeydew. The acidity carries through the finish with flavors of Granny Smith apple and kiwi.
