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!

External Reviews for Chardonnay Riverstone
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.
A consistently reliable Chardonnay, this wine is a perfect balance of fruit, oak and elegance. Roast chicken, crab cakes or shrimp souffleacute; would pair perfectly.
Brisk acidity marks this wine, giving it a mouthwatering quality, and the flavors veer toward lemons, limes and grapefruits, with a richer touch of nectarine and pear. Itrsquo;s a good, everyday Chardonnay, at a fair price.
The grapes for this many-layered Chardonnay come from one of the coldest and windiest coastal regions, allowing them 3ndash;4 extra weeks of ripening before harvest. The extra time is reflected in the creamy toastiness and slight apricot flavor of the rich mouthfeel and long-lasting finish.
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.
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.
A popular by-the-glass choice in restaurants, Lohrrsquo;s Riverstone is a clean and lasting Chardonnay in 2000. Therersquo;s a clarity of fruit flavor mdash; of white tree-fruits like nectarine, peach and pear mdash; all following a simple line. The finish lingers with scents of caramel and a pear-like liqueur.
