Wente Morning Fog

After the 3rd worst storm in Memphis history since Elvis (the storm, not the rock n’ roller), hundreds of thousands of residents were left without power. And, of course, this would happen during my visit. We ventured to find an open restaurant – J. Alexander’s Redlands Grill, where they served a fantastic Chardonnay with hints of lemon and green apple. WENTE MORNING FOG CHARDONNAY is estate grown, sustainably farmed, and hand-crafted, in the Livermore Valley of northern California.

Over the last few years, I have come to prefer Chardonnay’s aged in steel.  And Wente does an interesting combination, as they ferment this Chardonnay 50% in oak barrels and 50% in stainless steel. The result is hints of vanilla and natural fruit flavors, with a creamy note.  A great value for a modest price, $15-$20.
