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

Tasting Notes:

The wine displays aromatic and flavor characteristics that vividly express the harmony of Chardonnay fruit with the subtl complexity acquired through five months of aging in French oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation, an element of the Jordan signature, softened the wine's firm acid and promoted the development of round, rich tastes. Produced in the style of the white wine of Burgundy, the 1987 Chardonnay has a smooth texture and a lingering finish.
