Jordan Winery Chardonnay 2017
Made of 100% Chardonnay, Jordan Chardonnay has delicate hints of Fuji apple, citrus, nutmeg, honey and lightly toasted oak in the nose with a creamy palate full of pineapple, Meyer lemon and vanilla flavors balanced by crisp acidity.The Chardonnay grapes are harvested late at night to arrive at the winery within hours in crisp, cold, fresh condition. After gentle pressing, a slow, cold fermentation occurs in small French oak barrels; the wine is then aged in barrel for five months with minimal malolactic fermentation to preserve the trademark Russian River acidity. Serve with shellfish dishes, grilled chicken, pork tenderloin marinated in mango jam or with creamy cheeses such as Cremeux de Bourgogne, Saint Andre and Fromage d'Affinois.

Wine EnthusiastA touch of oak starts this off, with a palate built by tight-grained tannins and integrated fruit. Flavors of stone, white flowers and ripe apple combine to create a nuanced yet rich feel.
