Food Pairings for Chardonnay Riverstone
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 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
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.
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.
Smooth, spicy and gentle, showing a silky texture, vanilla-scented pear and apricot aromas and flavors, and a sense of elegance on the finish. A subtle, pretty wine for drinking now through 1995.
The grapes for this many-layered Chardonnay come from one of the coldest and windiest coastal regions, allowing them 3-4 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.
This bottling of Chardonnay, from one of the best white wine sites in Monterey, has kept its quality as well as its price over the years. Dry and zesty in acidity, it has a firm, stony minerality that underlies the apricot, white peach and grapefruit juice flavors. Shows real elegance, at a fair price.
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 - in other words, the works.
Medium straw color. 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.
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.
