Jordan Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Empirical wisdom and agility were needed to overcome the obstacles Mother Nature handed us in 2011. The 2011 Chardonnay is an elegant expression of a vintage that wanted anything but to be tamed. Aromas of freshly cut Fuji and Granny Smith apples, stone fruits and white flowers lead to vibrant minerality and bright fruit flavors. The creamy mid-palate is framed by well-integrated French oak and lively acidity that carry through to a refreshingly long finish." -Winery

Tucked into the hills of Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley, Jordan Vineyard & Winery has been dedicated to world-class Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and hospitality since its founding in 1972 by Tom and Sally Jordan. Under the guidance of Tom’s son, John, Jordan continues its pursuit of excellence in every aspect of the business, striving to place in balance the complexities of terroir, the artistry of the cellar and the joys of the table. The estate boasts nearly 1,200 acres of rolling hills, vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot), oak trees, lakes, streams, olive trees, and organic gardens, as well as winery, hospitality and operations facilities. Since the inaugural 1976 vintage, Jordan wines have been renowned for their consistency. We believe strongly in the timeless qualities of balance, elegance and food affinity, which are found in our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Russian River Valley Chardonnay. Architecture, landscaping, gardens, hospitality, and cuisine contribute to a special sense of place. The wines and the place give all of us at Jordan the rewarding feeling that our work is bringing pleasure to the many people who drink our wine and visit the estate. Read less

Buttery vanilla notes and long sexy finish. On the nose I didn't find anything special but the combined finish of the oak and the smokiness is awesome. Jordan smashing out of the park again.

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.
