The 2015 Jordan Russian River Valley Chardonnay debuted April 1 in conjunction with the first-ever Platinum Release Party. Watch our winemaking team taste this wine together and share their impressions.
Considered a more challenging vintage than its three predecessors, 2015 was marked by a cool, wet spring, leading to a smaller crop. Detailed work in the vineyards balanced and protected the smaller crop through the warm summer and a hurried harvest. What our winemaker finds most appealing in the 2015 are its distinct flinty flavors and textures reminiscent of the limestone soils of Chablis. We can’t recall a vintage of Jordan Chardonnay as Burgundian in style as this.
