The Wine:åÊJordan Winery Russian Rivery Valley Chardonnay
From:åÊRussian River Valley, California
Tastes Like:åÊLemon, green apple, pair
Pair With:åÊSeafood, chicken, pasta with cream sauce
Refined aromas of green apple, pear and lemon peel with a flinty note. Its elegant palate echoes the bouquet with bright flavors of stone fruit and citrus, backed by firm acidity. A touch of creaminess on the mid-palate is followed by lovely mineral notes that carry through a long finish. It would be hard to pick out this bottle as Californian in a lineup of White Burgundies. Enjoy now or cellar through 2022.
Our Staff Says: “Higher acid makes the fruit in this wine seem crisp and fresh with notes of white peach, pear, and apricot. The oak treatment is balanced and serves to elevate the fruit without overpowering it. Hints of vanilla and caramel are a wonderful compliment. I think this wine is ideal for pairing with seafood or chicken and will be a wonderfulåÊwine to enjoy in the warmer weather to come.” – Spencer
