J. Lohr Riverstone Chardonnay 2020
|Region||California, Central Coast, Arroyo Seco|
The 2019 J. Lohr Riverstone Chardonnay exhibits youthful hues of light straw. The enticing aromas are reminiscent of ripe orange, fresh nectarine, and hazelnut, which are complemented by the palate flavors of apricot, ripe peach, and honey. The rich texture and balance on the palate from aging sur lie gives way to flavors of vanilla, citrus cream, and a hint of oak on the long finish. This wine can be enjoyed with a variety of dishes, including roast chicken with peas and mushrooms, pan roasted halibut in butter, or shrimp scampi.
This widely available wine is worth stocking for midweek enjoyment. Light aromas of lemon, honey, nectarine and crushed white rock lead into a palate of baked apple and lemon juice, all framed by a chalky structure.
Pineapple and vanilla bean notes are plump and juicy, with an accent of citrus zest and a hint of fresh clipped herbs on the juicy finish. Drink now. 452,000 cases made.
