About the Winery:
Since the 1970s, we’ve focused on just three things: chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and hospitality. We believe that wine should not overpower the food at your table, but act as the bridge that connects all the little details of a memorable meal. The longevity of our wines, the diversity of our land and the creativity of our people ensure that Jordan is more than a bottle of wine.

Our winemaker’s guiding philosophy is to achieve a balance among all components of the wine–and to make no compromises in that pursuit. Dedication to quality and harmony between fruit, acidity, tannin, and alcohol ensures a wine of finesse and enduring elegance, as well as a thread of continuity in style from vintage to vintage.

Notes from the Winemaker:
In this wine, juicy citrus, Honeycrisp apple and tangerine flavors blend seamlessly with subtle French oak notes. Cooler-climate vineyard sourcing and the usage of new concrete eggs in the cellar enhance the lively acidity and pure fruit character, making this vintage exceptionally bright, food-friendly and cellar-worthy.

Composition: 100% Chardonnay

Fermentation: Fermented 12 days in 46% new French oak barrels, 6% in concrete eggs and 48% in stainless steel tanks. Bâtonnage was limited to six weeks and malolactic fermentation to 28% to ensure that aromas were not masked by a buttery component. Four months of sur lie aging (in both stainless steel and barrel) to bring a touch of creaminess to the mid-palate.

Ageing: New French oak for 6 months

Alcohol: 13.8% ABV

Tasting Notes:
Beautiful aromas of ripe Meyer lemon and orange blossom jump right out of the glass. The first taste is equally lively and dynamic as the bouquet. Vivid citrus flavors and a hint of minerality meld effortlessly with delicate French oak notes, all elevated by refreshing acidity.

With its brightness and lively citrus elements, the 2022 Jordan Chardonnay makes a wonderful aperitif and is also a versatile food pairing wine. Unlike many fuller-bodied chardonnays, Jordan Chardonnay creates a nice contrast of flavors with seafood such as salmon or oysters. It also has the structure and balance to pair beautifully with spicy Thai dishes and even heavier dishes like creamy chicken pasta or Dungeness crab.
