J. Lohr Riverstone Chardonnay 2021
|California, Central Coast, Arroyo Seco
The 2021 Riverstone display enticing aromas of ripe orange, white peach, nectarine, cocoa, and baking spices. The rich texture and balance on the palate from barrel aging sur lie offers flavors of ripe Meyer lemon, citrus cream, hazelnut, and a hint of oak on the long finish. This versatile wine pairs with a wide variety of foods, including fresh seafood risotto, mussels in white wine sauce, roast chicken with apples, and holiday ham and turkey.
Poached pear, coconut and lime juice make for a tropical nose. The palate is broad with flavors of peach and more coconut, with a lightly lingering acidity on the finish.
