The 2019 Jordan Russian River Chardonnay is incredibly French-inspired; it has the fruit profile of green apple, citrus blossom and lemon curd of many previous vintages, but what sets it apart is the mouthfeel. The natural acidity and beautiful minerality leave you salivating for more. A historic vintage, 2019 marks both the 40th anniversary of Jordan Chardonnay and Maggie Kruse’s first vintage as head winemaker.
Vivid aromas of citrus blossom, white flowers, lemon curd and pears invite the first sip. Flavors of kumquats, Gravenstein apples and Meyer lemon peel dance with a harmonious frame of creaminess, juicy acidity and oak barrel notes, making it very versatile at the dinner table. Hints of tangerine peel and subtle green apple laced in oak linger on the succulent finish. More expressive in its youth than previous vintages.
The 40th anniversary vintage of the wine was sourced from 11 vineyard blocks from five growers; the liquid spent six weeks on the lees (in stainless steel and in barrel) and give and a half month in new French oak. Lemon-lime edginess is juxtaposed with an inherent creaminess, while wet stone and green apple add verve and personality to the wine's already abundant appeal. Jazzy acidity and floral aromas and flavors lend a French accent to this modern California Chardonnay
