External Reviews for J Lohr Vineyard Series October Night Chardonnay
Winemaker's CommentsThe 2010 October Night Chardonnay has a youthful straw yellow color, and floral aromas with pear, lime and orange peel, and toasty vanilla. The winemaking techniques, used to enhance the spicy and exotic nature of this Chardonnay, included barrel fermentation in largely one-year-old French oak barrels in the coldest corner of our barrel room, followed by malolactic fermentation with lees stirring. This all contributed to a wonderfully complex bouquet that is echoed on the palate with textural richness. - Jeff Meier, winemaker Food PairingsThis wine is perfect with eggs Benedict, grilled chicken and pumpkin ravioli.

The J. Lohr October Night Vineyard Chardonnay is an attractive pale yellow in color, with floral aromas of white flowers, tangerine, lemon curd and butterscotch. The winemaking technique to enhance the floral nature of this Chardonnay included barrel fermentation in largely one-year-old French oak barrels in the coldest corner of our barrel room, followed by malolactic fermentation with lees stirring, all contributing to a wonderfully complex floral bouquet that is echoed on the palate with textural richness. Given its unique characters, the October Night Chardonnay would be an ideal accompaniment for an asian pear salad with scallops or delicately-flavored white fish entrees.
