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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Aromas of butterscotch overflow from the glass, running alongside juicy pineapple and ripe pear. This is a rich, full-bodied Chardonnay that has plenty of tropical fruit and a smooth, oak-driven finish. Pair it with cedar plank salmon with lemon butter.
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. It's a good, everyday Chardonnay, at a fair price.
