J Chardonnay Russian River Valley

J Chardonnay Russian River Valley Wine

Imagine relaxing in a hammock under a swaying palm tree while you sip a refreshing golden beverage, tropical notes tickling your nose like Spring flowers in bloom. That is what came to mind when we first took a sip of the J Chardonnay Russian River Valley from the J Vineyards & Winery located in Healdsburg California. The beautiful soft golden hue of this wine reflected the sunshine in the glass and aromas of citrus, honey, toffee and pineapple made it feel like a summer getaway.

J Vineyards Chardonnay Salad

A straightforward Chardonnay, it was soft, round, and very well balanced with light oak. Flavors of stone fruit, tangy citrus and sea salt were embraced by the creamy texture of the J Chardonnay.

We thought to pair it with something fresh and fitting of the season so we enjoyed this J Chardonnay with our vibrant Farmers Market Spring Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette. The lemony dressing played beautifully with citrus notes of the wine and the creaminess of the Chardonnay calmed the exuberant green flavors of this salad.

  1. OMGosh girls, you did *not* just go there… “Imagine relaxing in a hammock under a swaying palm tree while you sip a refreshing golden beverage, tropical notes tickling your nose like Spring flowers in bloom.” Now, that’s what I’m totally imagining, wondering why I am not there indulging in that Chardonnay with you. Seriously – that is so hard to turn down – it sounds fabulous! I’m glad you enjoyed!

    I haven’t tried the J Wines yet, this Chardonnay sounds really great though with those lemon flavors.
