She and Him are a West Coast duo that are seriously fun, just like the Wente Vineyards 2008 Morning Fog Chardonnay. The wine comes from a fog covered vineyard near San Francisco, more or less half way between the Los Angeles and Washington State homes of the two She and Him collaborators, Zooey Deschanel and Matt Ward. If you haven’t heard there recent single “In the Sun,” image what Feist would sound like if she was from California.
The wine is a very approachable, it starts with green apple and fruit and shows some herbaceous seasoning before closing out with a nice balanced acid. The Oak effect is tastefully mitigated as it is fermented in French Oak and stainless steel. In fact, the wine itself has a certain French joie-de-vivre. The Wente Vineyards website talks about its aromas, which I had a very hard time picking up any trace of – I even ended up dipping my nose into the wine while searching for aroma. The Wente Vineyards website, by the way, proves that they are serious about transparency. They list the PH level, acid count and every detail down to the tire pressure in their delivery trucks. Wine Geeks Unite: http://www.wentevineyards.com/wine/estate_grown/morning_fog_chardonnay/ My best advice is that you enjoy this wine, great food, company and music like She and Him’s In The Sun.
