The 2002 growing season yielded Chardonnay grapes with optimal sugar development, bright natural acidity, and vibrant fruit character. Partial malolactic fermentation imparted a creamy texture while retaining the 2002 Jordan’s crisp acidity.
The early part of the 2002 growing season in the Russian River Valley was characterized by moderate temperatures and little precipitation. This placid weather enabled the vines to set a balanced, even crop. Summer weather was near perfect, allowing the grapes to slowly evolve and develop optimal balance of fruit and acidity. Overall, it was an excellent harvest.
The 2002 Jordan Chardonnay has aromas of green apple, kiwi, honey and lightly toasted oak, with pear, Fuji apple and limestone on the palate. This wine is past its peak maturity. Drink now.Download Tasting Notes
