Caramel and toffee from lavish oak aging. Richly balanced and developed Chardonnay with a creamy texture and lovely green apple notes. Buttery hazelnuts on the finish. Oh yum! A mouth-filling, luxurious Chardonnay from J. Lohr's Painter Bridge label. Pair with roast chicken.

Chardonnay food pairings: roast chicken, creamy pasta sauce dishes, grilled fish, beef bourguignon.

Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

A delicious and delightful Chardonnay from California's Monterey County, buttery with tropical fruit aromatics and a luscious palate giving butterscotch, tropical fruit, citrus lemon and slight oak with a long buttered finish. Silky, sensuous and unforgettable!
The Chardonnay grapes from J. Lohr's Arroyo Vista label are grown on vines planted in gravelly soils in the cool, windy appellation of Monterrey County and hand-harvested at night. The wine is both barrel fermented and aged. Pair with chicken with paprika. Pair with roast chicken. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
