Jordan Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2009 750ml

Jordan Chardonnay Russian River Valley

90 Points Wine Advocate: The 2009 Chardonnay is one of Gary Jordan’s best whites. With half the crop fermented in French oak (50% new) with 9 months lees aging, it has a taut, reserved, but very focused bouquet that displays judicious use of new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp entry and good acidity and shows subtle green apple, lime flower and hazelnut notes towards the composed finish. This is not a showy Chardonnay, but one that is very well crafted and succinct. Drink now-2016.

Like all Jordan wines, our Russian River Valley Chardonnay is ready to drink upon release. Although white wines are not given much consideration when it comes to aging, Jordan Chardonnays age exceptionally well. The bright acidity and balance, hallmarks of Rob Davis’ winemaking style, allow the wines to evolve beautifully with age.

An unseasonably warm spring was balanced by an unseasonably cool growing season, making 2009 a vintage where early-ripening grape varieties excelled. To preserve acids and lower sugars, night harvesting commenced in mid-September. Every Chardonnay cluster was handpicked by October 1, and the entire Jordan harvest was complete by October 12— one day before the rains began. What a difference a day makes.
