J. Lohr - Riverstone - Chardonnay
Overview: The vines for our J. Lohr Estates Riverstone Chardonnay are on primarily Elder loam soils underlain by “riverstones” deposited over thousands of years by the Arroyo Seco River. The unique combination of sandy loam and cobblestone-laden soils keep the vines’ canopy growth and fruit in balance while the cooling winds off nearby Monterey Bay extend the growing season. The result is Chardonnay with intense varietal character complemented by bright, food-pairing acidity.
Tasting Notes: Enticing aromas of ripe orange, white peach, nectarine, cocoa, and baking spices. The rich texture and balance on the palate from barrel aging sur lie offers flavors of ripe Meyer lemon, citrus cream, hazelnut, and a hint of oak on the long finish.
Pairing: This versatile wine pairs with a wide variety of foods, including fresh seafood risotto, mussels in white wine sauce, roast chicken with apples, and holiday ham and turkey.
