Jordan Russian River Chardonnay 2014

Wine Enthusiast, 91 Points - Spicy nutmeg meets a reckoning of lemon zest and grapefruit pith in this light, bright, elegant white that's subtle in oak. Notions of just-ripe pear follow around a rounded, medium-bodied build, providing plenty of juiciness and structure.
Enticing aromas of pear, kiwi and lychee. The palate is round, creamy and refined, with layers of lemon curd, bright acidity and a kiss of caramel from barrel aging. A juicy, succulent wine that leaves a lasting impression of fresh Meyer lemon and stone fruits on the crisp finish. Enjoy now or cellar through 2021.
“It was a remarkable vintage for Chardonnay. Moderate weather with no heat spikes—similar growing conditions to the stellar 2013 vintage—led to intense fruit flavors, allowing us to minimize the influence of buttery notes and focus on the lively acidity and apple flavors in our Burgundy-inspired style. A shift to only new oak, combined with the balance of stainless-steel aging, further assured our ability to craft a crisp, delicious wine that is very approachable in its youth.”
— Winemaker Rob Davis
