Editorial Reviews for Jordan Chardonnay
Very low key on the nose with complex aromas of buttery nuts, herbs, pineapple tops, older wood, and creamy apple fruit topped with nice toast and creme brulee aromas. Decidedly acid-driven on entry, this delivers wonderfully clear flavors of citrus fruit and tart apples over a base of older wood accented with a hint of toast and vanilla in the mouth. Just wonderfully balanced with intense flavors but a light, elegant mouthfeel capped off by a long, complex and subtle finish. This is lovely; complex yet restrained with amazing acidity for a California Chardonnay. 92pts Acidity: Medium High Perceived Sweetness: Low Oak: Medium Low Spicy Flavors: Low Savory Flavors: Medium Low Fruity Flavors: Medium High Intensity of Flavor: Medium High Weight in Mouth: Medium Low

Easy to drink this has enough sophistication to pair with rich scallop tuna and lobster dishes. It
2010 Jordan Chardonnay is a delicate wine filled with subtle fruit and oak nuances to seduce the palate. Aromas of fresh green and Fuji apples lead seamlessly to an elegant palate framed by lively acidity and a hint of oak from aging five months in French oak barrels. Apple crispness lingers in the long, graceful finish. Drink now through 2016.
