WA 90 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - "The 2012 Chardonnay is raised in Burgundy barrels. It has an orthodox, creamy, slightly buttery bouquet that does not own the energy of the unoaked version, but is nicely controlled. The palate is nicely balanced with a rounded, marmalade tinged opening, plenty of lime zest and apricot fruit and the oak remaining well-behaved and out of the limelight on the finish. This is well-crafted. Drink now-2017."
Winemakers Notes - "Winemaker Rob Davis thinks the 2012 Jordan Chardonnay is about as close to Burgundy as we’ve ever come. Aromas of fresh Fuji apple and Asian pear entice the nose, laced with intriguing hints of lemon custard, flint-like minerality and a subliminal caress of integrated vanilla and baking spice from thoughtful time in French oak. The mid-palate is creamy and complete with a firm acidity that carries through the persistent finish. Jordan’s 2012 Chardonnay sets a new benchmark for future vintages." 100% Chardonnay. 13.5% ABV.
