wine bottle and a glass of wine

Jordan Chardonnay 2020

(Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, CA) $40

It’s hard to believe that this year marks Jordan winery’s 50th anniversary. For all of the years that I can remember, the winery has never deviated from its pure classical style which was inspired originally by Tom Jordan’s love of French wine. That said, Jordan’s Chardonnay is every bit a California wine—with some cool-climate restraint built in. Lively and fresh, it whirls onto the palate with the cooling flavors of every citrus you can think of from mandarin oranges to lemon meringue to lime zest. A nice hum of crispness vibrates through the wine’s lovely deliciousness. If you like big, buttery, oaky, super ripe Chardonnays, this is not your wine. (13.7 abv)
