Chardonnay Riverstone 2010
The J. Lohr Estates Bay Mist White Riesling is a very youthful, pale brassy yellow color with enticing fruit aromas of apricot, passion fruit, lychee, curry and coconut. The 2.14% residual sugar is balanced by the crisp grape acidity and natural spritz from a long, cool fermentation, making the White Riesling a delightfully fruity, refreshing wine, capable of complementing the vibrant flavors of Pacific Rim cuisine, Indian curried chicken, or served as an aperitif.
Editorial Reviews for Chardonnay Riverstone
This is decidedly oaky on the nose, full of gingery spice with classic pineapple and lime aromas. A touch sweet and soft on entry, this is creamy with acids that perk up on the back end helping to define the pineapple fruit a touch more clearly. The wood spice is obvious but balanced by the fruit on the palate. You gotta love oak if you’re going to try this wine. 84pts
I brought this wine to a friends dinner party. He made Seafood Newburg for the main course. We found that this Chardonnay paired very well with the richness of the dish.
Great value. Floral notes, long smooth oaky finish. A complex wine for a great price.
Over whelming flavor of a sweet spicy pear. Strong butter taste.

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.
This wine has a garnet color, and is adorned with aromas of red fruit, lilac, rose petal, vanilla and notes of sage and thyme. Tar, beeswax and oak frame the complex varietal character unique to Pinot Noir. Soft tannins.
With strawberry jam, espresso coffee and sandalwood, this richly textured and supple Pinot Noir leaves ripe fruit and a touch of sage on the finish.
This elegant Chardonnay has an attractive pale strawyellow color. The aromas are of pear, apple and stone fruits, combined with a perfumed roasted hazelnut and butterscotch bouquet from the barrel fermentation and sur lie aging. The flavors are very soft with ripe pear, tangelo citrus and vanilla toastiness, producing layers of complexity with a silky balance of fresh fruit acidity and palate-weight. -Jeff Meier, winemaker ** SOLD OUT **
