Jordan Vineyard & Winery Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2007
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.
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.
External Reviews for Jordan Vineyard & Winery Chardonnay Russian River Valley
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.
