A rich, lively wine offering floral notes and balanced oak. The Rued clone imparts a Muscat/Gewürztraminer nose that makes a very inviting and surprising Chardonnay.
92 points, Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate, Dec 2014
“The exotic 2013 Chardonnay Jackson Estate Arroyo Seco sees 100% French oak, of which 50% is new, and comes from Clone 809. One could swear there was some Viognier cofermented with this Chardonnay. While tasting this wine, we were joking that it is a pornographic style of Chardonnay, because of its exotic, ostentatious aromatics of honeysuckle, spring flowers, pineapple, orange marmalade and lychee. It’s rich, ripe, medium to full-bodied and probably a love-it or leave-it style. But I love it. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.”
