I love Chardonnay’s that have a blanace of fruit and oak toastiness – the J. Lohr Estates Riverstone Chardonnay fits that description perfectly!
This elegant Chardonnay has an attractive pale strawyellow color. The aromas are of pear, apple and stone fruits, combined with a perfumed roasted hazelnut and butterscotch bouquet from the barrel fermentation and sur lie aging. The flavors are very soft with ripe pear, tangelo citrus and vanilla toastiness, producing layers of complexity with a silky balance of fresh fruit acidity and palate-weight.
It paired beautifully with my Roast Chicken and root vegetables tonight. And, it was a good price point at under $15!
