J Lohr Riverstone Chardonnay


The vines for our J. Lohr Estates Riverstone Chardonnay are grown primarily on Elder loam soils underlain by “riverstones” deposited over thousands of years by the Arroyo Seco River. These stones limit soil depth from one to four feet, although some roots are found at greater depths. This unique combination of sandy loam and cobblestones keeps the vines’ growth and fruit in balance, while the cool climate and winds of the Salinas Valley extend the growing season – retaining the natural grape acids and intense varietal character of Chardonnay.


“The 2020 Riverstone Chardonnay exhibits youthful hues of light straw. The enticing aromas are reminiscent of ripe orange, peach, cocoa, and baking spices. The rich texture and balance on the palate from barrel aging sur lie offers flavors of ripe pear, apricot, citrus cream, hazelnut, and a hint of oak on the long finish.”
