Many wine drinkers don’t think of California chardonnay as a wine that can be aged. And while the bigger, buttery and higher-alcohol chardonnays do tend to fade within a few years, quality California chardonnays of balance with firm acidity can live for almost a decade. Acidity is the spine of the wine. Sometimes, our winemaker even calls it the soul of the wine. This month’s episode of Jordan Uncorked features a five-year-old Jordan Chardonnay requested by one of our fans. The 2013 Jordan Chardonnay tastes so young, we’re featuring it at more wine tastings and dinners. Thanks for the suggestion.
