Medium straw yellow in color, this 2015 Arroyo Vista Chardonnay exhibits intriguing aromas of wet stone, white peach, lemon cream, creme brulee, and vanilla. The rich palate texture is derived from the use of classic Burgundian techniques, such as primary and malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels and weekly stirring of the lees during aging. The texture is balanced by fresh flavors of stone and citrus fruits, with a long, sweet oak finish. Delicious with citrus-marinated chicken, seared scallops with lemon tarragon, or triple creme brie cheese.
Offering power on the palate, the 2015 J. Lohr Arroyo Vista Chardonnay is perfect for imbibers enjoying richer style wines. The wine's ripe fruit and generous oak textures make it a delicious choice with grilled chicken or pork chops.
