Jordan Vineyard & Winery Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

After gentle pressing, a slow, cold fermentation occurred in small 100% French oak barrels (48% new). The wine was then aged in barrel for 5 months. Minimal malolactic fermentation allowed the wine to retain its natural acidity—a hallmark of Russian River Valley fruit. This acidity contributes to the wine’s clean and distinctive finish. 100% Chardonnay; 13.5% alcohol.

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

The color is pale, but crystal clear. The nose is standard for a chardonnay, slightly sour of grape leaves and low sugar content. The initial taste is mild in intensity and mild sweetness. The taste is consumed by the grape leaves and concentrated sunshine. The follow-through is over quickly and slightly bitter in the top of the throat.

Light, bright yellow. Fresh apple, fig and tangerine on the nose, with a kiss of vanillin oak adding depth. Pliant orchard and pit fruit flavors are given tangy lift by citrus peel and dusty minerals. The fruit is a touch sweet but the wine's minerality helps it maintain focus and energy.

The bouquet offers delicate aromas of Fuji apple, citrus, nutmeg, honey, and lightly toasted oak. The wine delivers lively and complex flavors of Asian pear, key lime, and Marcona almond. These refined notes offer a seamless expression of rich, bold flavors with a long, elegant finish. This wine will be delicious upon release and will continue to gain honeyed richness with an additional 3 to 5 years of aging. Serve between 55 and 60 degrees to ensure the full flavor development.

On the nose, offers multi-layered hints of pear, citrus, kiwi and hawthorn accented by vanilla crème brûlée. A creamy palate complemented by ample acidity supports flavors of Fuji apple, pineapple, and Meyer lemon with appealing minerality. This wine has a delicious balance of rich, aromatic fruit and crisp acidity. 13.5% alcohol.
