The 2019 Jordan Russian River 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. A historic vintage, 2019 marks both the 40th anniversary of Jordan Chardonnay and Maggie Kruse's first vintage as head winemaker.
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 avors 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.
A crisp, elegant and nicely textured wine, this is the first vintage under Winemaker Maggie Kruse. Wet stone, Meyer lemon and crunchy green apple all come into play around integrated oak and a hint of baking spice. The acidity keeps it fresh and focused.
