J. Lohr Arroyo Vista Vineyard Chardonnay 2017
Light straw in color, this 2017 Arroyo Vista Chardonnay exhibits intriguing aromas of Meyer lemon cream, yellow flowers, baked pear, crème brûlée and toasted hazelnuts. The rich palate texture is derived from the use of classic Burgundian techniques, such as primary and malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels and weekly stirring of the lees during aging. The texture is balanced by fresh flavors of apple, pear, and citrus, with a long, sweet oak finish. Food Pairing: Triple crème brie cheese, herb roasted chicken, seafood risotto, or hazelnut-crusted halibut.
