2009 J. Lohr Riverstone Chardonnay
|Vineyard:||J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines|
2009 J. Lohr Estates Riverstone Chardonay has a bright and youthful straw yellow color. The aromas are of lime zest, ripe pear, nectarine and pineapple with caramel, butterscotch, honey and vanilla perfume from the barrel fermentation and sur lie aging. The flavors are very complex and rich with citrus, stone fruit and barrel toastiness gracefully balanced by fresh acidity, creating a very flavorful and wonderfully balanced Chardonnay. Pair with cream-sauced pasta dishes, roasted chicken or sautéed halibut.
Wine & SpiritsJust like clockwork, this most recent vintage of J. Lohrrsquo;s legendary Chardonnay has arrived packed with the same rich tropical fruit flavors, intensity and toasty, buttery finish that has been their hallmark for several years. Spicy, oaky and full-bodied for a chardonnay, this wine will hold up well against grilled portabello mushrooms or barbecued chicken.
