J. Lohr Arroyo Vista Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

SKU 24752


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.

Wine EnthusiastPlump aromas of pineapple jam, plumeria and toast show on the ripe nose of this bottling. The palate, crisp at first, is broadened out by a pineapple cream flavor. A chalky grip leads to a toasty finish.

Wine SpectatorCrisp and juicy, offering fresh-cut Gala apple, ripe melon and pear tart flavors. Supple and spicy on the finish, with some buttery hints. Drink now through 2021.
