ELEASES
2014 RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY

CHARDONNAY
WINEMAKER'S COMMENTS
Enticing aromas of pear, kiwi and lychee. The palate is round,
creamy and refined, with layers of lemon curd, bright acidity
and a kiss of caramel from barrel aging. A juicy, succulent
wine that leaves a lasting impression of fresh Meyer lemon
and stone fruits on the crisp finish. Enjoy now or cellar
through 2021.
THE VINTAGE
2014 was a remarkable vintage for Chardonnay. Moderate
weather with no frost, heat spikes or major rains-similar
growing conditions to the stellar 2013 vintage-led to
intense fruit flavors, allowing the purity of Russian River
Valley stone-fruit flavors to shine through. This vintage's
vibrant apple flavors and lively acidity were perfectly suited
for our Burgundy-inspired style.
THE WINEMAKING
From September 5 to 14, grapes were handpicked in the
coolness of the night to retain their aromatics and purity of
flavor. Fermentation occurred in 60% stainless steel and 40%
new French oak barrels. After sur-lie aging and b√Ętonnage to
further elevate its creamy texture, this wine underwent 30%
malolactic fermentation to preserve its bright acidity and
natural fruit intensity. Aged for 5.5 months in 100% new
French oak barrels before bottling. 100% Chardonnay.
FOOD PAIRING SUGGESTIONS
With its bright acidity, crispness and vibrant fruit, the
2014 Jordan Chardonnay is a versatile wine for food pairing.
It will shine when served with a variety of seafood dishes,
salads and pastas. The wine's elegant balance, creamy
mouthfeel and subtle oak nuances also stands up to cream
sauces and grilled meats.
