Wine Review: Jordan 2010 Chardonnay Russian River Valley

This wine is a light straw color. The nose is filled with notes of spice which adds an unusual warmth in this chardonnay, along with fruit notes of green apple, a hint of pear and citrus notes. The palate is round, with the those flavors of green apple, pear, citrus and spice. There is a nice acidity in this wine that makes it beg to be paired with food. This wine is balanced with oak, but the oak does not overpower the fruit flavors in this wine. The finish has a nice length with the the fruit and spice in harmony. This wine is "elegant" and would pair well with poultry that will grace your holiday table. I would also pair this wine with grilled fish, and appetizers with spinach and artichokes in puff pastry.  Note: This wine was a sample provided by Jordan Winery SRP $29.00
