Jordan Winery Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Not a typical California Chardonnay, Jordan is crafted to honor the finest white Burgundy with its crisp fruit flavors, vibrant acidity and lingering finish. A vintage defined by its crispness, vibrancy and freshness. Pretty aromas of honeysuckle, lemon blossom and Fuji apple spring from the glass. The palate boasts bright, lively layers of citrus with a hint of oak and creaminess from careful barrel aging and bâtonnage. Flavors of kumquat, lemon and Fuji apple linger in the juicy, mouthwatering finish. Enjoy now or cellar through 2023. Due to its crispness and citrus elements, the 2018 Jordan Chardonnay can be enjoyed as an aperitif and is also a versatile food pairing wine. Unlike many fuller-bodied Chardonnays, Jordan Chardonnay will not overpower salads or raw bar favorites, and it also creates a nice contrast of flavors with richer seafood, such as salmon or ahi tuna. The wine's acidity and oak nuances can complement grilled chicken or roasted vegetable dishes and creamy pastas.
This light, elegant white wine shows seamless integration of oak and weight. Green apple, pear and crushed rock tones combine effortlessly, boosted by fresh, lasting acidity.
