J. Lohr Riverstone Chardonnay 1999
from Central Coast, California
Brassy yellow in color, the 1999 Riverstone Chardonnay has terrior-based aromas of lime, nectarine, and wet stones, complemented by butter, vanilla and toasted oak bouquet from the barrel fermentation and sur lie aging. The flavors echo the aromas with citrus, stone, fruits, butter, butterscotch and toasty oak. Producing layers of complexity, an exceptional balance of acidity and palate weight, it ends with a lenghty finish.
Alcohol: 13.8% by volume.

Exotic fruit flavors touched off by oak. Intense because high acidity matched by high fruit. Very long finish. More versatile than your average Chardonnay because the high acidity allows it to be used with heavier sauces, like a good Auslese.
A Customer - North Carolina
This has been our favorite Chardonnay for years! It's a great price performer and has an unbelievable character - try it - we are sure you will not be disappointed. Every time we have moved - we've asked the local store to carry it and it's moved to a two row item in months!
