Chardonnay Riverstone 2009
Mittelschweres Strohgelb mit Goldreflexen. Delikate Aromen von Limetten, Nektarinen, Pfirsich unterlegt von dezenten Röstaromen, Caramel, Butter und Vanille. Im Gaumen kräftig mit viel Schmelz und gut im Hintergrund eingebundenen Holzaromen. Sehr langer, erfrischender und warmer Abgang.
I enjoyed this California Chardonnay the other night with friends. It was well balanced with notes of vanilla, golden apples and pears, with a little acidity coursing through as well. Very nice!
this is the two and a half men of California Chardonnay.
This Monterey Chardonnay is great value for the price. J. Lohr produces excellent reasonably priced wines of various varietals. This Riverstone Chardonnay has distinct flavors of buttery citrus with a well balanced acidity and tones of stone fruits. It has a smooth finish with no bitter after notes. Load up the truck!
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Chardonnay Riverstone
Aromas of lime and grapefruit zest, nectarine, green apricots and wet stones are complemented by a smoky, butter, vanilla and toasted oak bouquet. The flavors echo the aromas with citrus, stone fruits, and smoky, toasty oak, producing layers of complexity with an excellent balance of acidity and palate weight.
One of the best Chards in this price category, this Monterey example is rich in tropical fruit, peach and spice flavors, and crisp in acidity. It has smoky oak, butter cream, a bit of lees mdash; in other words, the works.
Tastes of oak flavors; behind that the citrus, pear and cream notes emerge. Therersquo;s enough fruit to merit recommendation. Drink now.
Tempting tangerine, pear, butterscotch and toast aromatics lead to ripe fruit that is richly textured with honey nuances. This is a full flavored Chardonnay characteristic of its Monterey heritage.
Just like clockwork, this most recent vintage of J. Lohrrsquo;s legendary Chardonnay has arrived packed with the same rich tropical fruit flavors, intensity and toasty, buttery finish that has been their hallmark for several years. Spicy, oaky and full-bodied for a chardonnay, this wine will hold up well against grilled portabello mushrooms or barbecued chicken.
A complex array of elegant pear, spice, honey, and hazelnut notes, leading up to a nicely smoky, toasted oak finish. Combines richness with depth, concentration and finesse. Has the flavor and complexity of wines two to three times the price.
Delicate aromas of citrus, nectarine and peach with a bouquet of butterscotch, toasted oak, vanilla and butter. The fully ripened fruit and malolactic fermentation provide a luscious texture with stone fruit, lime and buttery flavors balanced with vanilla and toasty oak from the twelve month barrel aging creating a generous, full-flavored Chardonnay characteristic of its Monterey County heritage.
