Winemaker's Notes:

Fruit from our Alexander Valley estate vineyards and the cooler Russian River Valley produced a wine possessing a complex mineral and floral bouquet with notes of green apple, pear, citrus and butter. On the palate, the wine is full and vibrant with flavors that include ripe apple, melon, fig and honey. Barrel fermentation in French cooperage balances this crisp Chardonnay with delicate oak and creamy lees flavors. It has a long, expansive finish that ends with just the right amount of acidity to make this wine the perfect complement to many types of cuisine.
My Notes:

About Jordan Vineyard & Winery:

In 1972, Tom and Sally Jordan, a young couple from Colorado who shared an unbridled enthusiasm for French food and wine, followed their hearts to California’s wine country. Since their inaugural 1976 vintage, the Jordans have been heralded for their elegant wines, culinary excellence and gracious hospitality. Jordan Vineyard & Winery lies tucked into the hills of Alexander Valley in Sonoma County, where the iconic Jordan chateau, inspired by the great estates of France, overlooks 1,200 acres of rolling hills and vineyards with three quarters of the land dedicated to natural habitat. Today, second-generation vintner John Jordan continues to build upon the legacy of his parents, preserving the timeless winemaking qualities of balance, finesse and food affinity.
