2019 Jordan Chardonnay
2019 Jordan Chardonnay A nice balance of delicacy and deliciousness. Inviting aromas of honeysuckle and lemon peel lead to bright flavors of stone fruits and citrus. The palate is elegant yet succulent, with layers of oak-laced lemon, pears, quince, and white peach—all supported by uplifting acidity. Its crisp, citrusy finish lingers on the palate, enticing you to take another sip.
The 2019 Chardonnay is incredibly French inspired; it has the fruit profile of green apple, citrus blossom and lemon curd of many previous vintages, but what sets it apart is the mouthfeel. The natural acidity and beautiful minerality leave you salivating for more.” —Maggie Kruse, winemaker Winemaker’s Tasting Notes Vivid aromas of citrus blossom, white flowers, lemon curd and pears invite the first sip. Flavors of kumquats, Gravenstein apples and Meyer lemon peel dance with a harmonious frame of creaminess, juicy acidity and oak barrel notes, making it very versatile at the dinner table. Hints of tangerine peel and subtle green apple laced in oak linger on the succulent finish. More expressive in its youth than previous vintages. Enjoy now or cellar through 2026. Chef’s Pairing Suggestions Due to its crispness and citrus elements, the 2019 Jordan Chardonnay can be enjoyed as an aperitif and is also a versatile food pairing wine. Unlike many fuller-bodied Chardonnays, Jordan Chardonnay will not overpower salads or raw bar favorites, and it also creates a nice contrast of flavors with richer seafood, such as salmon or ahi tuna. The wine’s acidity and oak nuances can complement grilled chicken or roasted vegetable dishes and creamy pastas.
