Jordan Russian River Chardonnay 2020
A remarkably crisp and well-balanced Chardonnay packed with citrus (lime zest and grapefruit pith) and young tree fruit aromas (apple and pear). Notes of delicate white flower hovers in the background with nuances of oak, but nothing that overplays the liveliness of the fruit — a delightful intermingling through to a mouthwatering finish that lasts a little longer than you'd expect. Tasted July 2022.
Process: Fermented in 54% new French oak barrels (46% in stainless steel tanks), four months of sur lie aging (in both stainless steel and barrel), and 5.5 months aging in 100% new French oak.
