The inspiration for Jordan Chardonnay has always been Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault, but in vintages like 2015, Mother Nature steered us to another Burgundy village. The 2015 Jordan Russian River Chardonnay’s distinct flinty flavors and textures channel a Chablis-like quality that is alluringly subtle, inviting and delicious.
Mother Nature blessed us with an ideal growing season for the second consecutive year in 2013. Moderate temperatures prevailed from spring through fall, which is the key to our Burgundy-inspired style. The end result being an exemplary vintage—possibly our finest bottling to date.
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.
The 2011 Jordan Russian River Valley Chardonnay is an elegant expression of a vintage that wanted anything but to be tamed. Its vibrant acidity and delicate stone fruit flavors make it an ideal food pairing wine.
