Jordan Vineyard & Winery 2012 Chardonnay

2012 was truly a phenomenal growing season with the best weather—every winemaker’s dream. The foundation for the 2012 Jordan Russian River Valley Chardonnay was a bountiful crop that exhibited exceptionally vibrant, stone fruit characters and bright acidity, ensuring a delicious white wine for food pairing that is more akin to France than California. Jordan’s 2012 Chardonnay sets a new benchmark for future vintages. Perfume-like aromas of mandarin orange and white raspberry open to a rich palate of fresh green apple and mango. Hand-crafted French oak nuances on the mid-palate are supported by a creamy texture and balanced finish, creating a white wine designed to stand the test of time. Enjoy now paired with seasoned white meat or creamy pasta dishes or cellar through 2018.The 2012 Jordan Chardonnay is the ultimate food pairing wine at the dinner table, acting as a complement, contrast or bridge to vast flavours. Expressions of clean and precise fruit, a vivid backbone of acidity and subtle oak nuances are its key components to versatility. From halibut ceviche, abalone tiradito and grilled sand dabs to soft-shell crab, garden tempura and grilled chicken, the wine and food pairing options for this Sonoma Chardonnay are limitless.
