The Good Juice – On Vintages - November 9, 2017

J. Lohr 2015 October Night Chardonnay


Vineyards
The vineyards for the October Night Chardonnay lie in J. Lohr’s Block 9 plantings in the Arroyo Seco AVA of Monterey County, near the mouth of the Arroyo Seco River, which provides the vines a slightly more wind-protected environment in which to grow. Comprised largely of Dijon Clone 809 Chardonnay - known in some circles as the Musqué Clone - these vines produce a very distinctive and attractive, powerful floral character. The soil is laden throughout its loamy profile with “Greenfield potatoes,” stones that resemble potatoes in size and appearance and which absorb heat during the day and radiate their heat after sunset, enhancing floral character and richness.

Winemaker’s Comments
The 2015 October Night Chardonnay is pale straw yellow in color with floral aromas of gardenia, orange blossom, wet stone and ripe apple. Traditional Burgundian winemaking techniques, such as weekly stirring of the lees in French oak barrels, were used to complement these exotic aromatics, providing rich, elegant texture. This Chardonnay finishes long on the palate with ripe tangerine, baking spices and a hint of toasted oak. —Kristen Barnhisel, winemaker, white wine

Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast, May 2017


“Rich honeysuckle, marzipan and oak aromas meet bright lemongrass on the nose of this bottling, showing both the fresh and oxidative sides of the grape. Smoked chicken and brioche notes are prominent on the palate, leading to a tangy, botanical, juniper-laced finish.”
