J. Lohr Riverstone Chardonnay 2021
|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.
Poached pear, coconut and lime juice make for a tropical nose. The palate is broad with flavors of peach and more coconut, with a lightly lingering acidity on the finish.
