J. Lohr Chardonnay Riverstone 2014

This elegant Chardonnay has an attractive pale straw yellow color. The aromas are of nectarine, pear and apple, combined with a perfumed roasted hazelnut and butterscotch bouquet from the barrel fermentation and sur lie aging. The flavors are very soft with ripe pear, tangelo citrus and vanilla toastiness, producing layers of complexity with a silky balance of fresh fruit acidity and palate weight. Pair with dishes such as lobster pappardelle with chive butter, grilled late summer vegetables and creamy butternut squash soup. [+]
