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 with a few 100-degree days. What i find appealing in the 2015 are its distinct flinty flavors and textures reminiscent of the limestone soils of chablis. I can’t recall a vintage of jordan chardonnay as old world as this. -rob davis winemaker winemaker’s tasting notes refined aromas of green apple pear and lemon peel with a flinty note. Its elegant palate echoes the bouquet with bright flavors of stone fruit and citrus backed by firm acidity. A touch of creaminess on the midpalate is followed by lovely mineral notes that carry through a long finish. It would be hard to pick out this bottle as californian in a lineup of white burgundies. Enjoy now or cellar through 2022. Chef’s pairing suggestions with its elegant structure crisp acidity and citrus flavors the 2015 jordan chardonnay is a versatile wine for food pairing. It will complement a variety of seafood such as oysters and halibut as well as light salads and poultry dishes like meyer lemon chicken. The wine’s acidity will also cut through the fat in pates and cream sauces.

Sur lie two months of sur-lie aging with a weekly batonnage (in both stainless steel and barrel) to heighten the creamy texture of the mid-palate. Cooperage french oak barrels from eight coopers were chosen based on grain tightness low tannin potential and light toast levels allowing for the purity of the fruit to shine.
