J. Lohr Riverstone Chardonnay 2018
375ml | LCBO# 10866 $12.95

“The 2018 Riverstone Chardonnay exhibits youthful hues of light straw. The enticing aromas are reminiscent of white peach, apricot, ripe orange, and cocoa, and complemented by the palate flavors of citrus cream and nectarine. The rich texture and balance on the palate from aging sur lie gives way to flavors of vanilla, crème brûlée, and a hint of oak on the long finish.” – Kristen Barnhisel, winemaker, white wines.

Food pairing: This wine can be enjoyed with a variety of dishes, including Dijon tarragon chicken, roasted halibut, or moules marinière.

“If refreshing is what you look for in a Chardonnay, look no further than this delicious offering from winemaker Kristen Barnhisel. It’s a stone fruit medley, with some citrus and honey joining in. Creamy in the mid palate and zesty on the finish, it’s an easy to drink, easy to find and easy to love glass. This will win over some ABC (Anything But Chardonnay) snobs – pour it for them blind on a warm afternoon and I’ll wager you’ll have no complaints. Then tell them the price and chuckle silently to yourself.” 92 Pts – Rich Cook, winereviewonline.com, November 26, 2019
