Kendall Jackson Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay California
Vintner's Reserve. Jackson Estates Grown. For more than two decades, my family has sourced fruit from mountain and hillside vineyards to bring you flavorful wines. The rewards of patience can be dramatic. For more than two decades, my family has planted vineyards along California's cool coast where, each evening, the fog that drifts in the Pacific Ocean causes the grapes to ripen more slowly. This extended hang time intensifies the flavor in the grapes resulting in, I believe, better wines. This means that our 100% Chardonnay is bursting with tropical flavors - pineapple, mango and papaya - from Northern Santa Barbara County, citrus notes explode in your mouth from Monterey fruit, and Gala apple flavors define Sonoma County. To balance this intensity, we age the wine in small oak barrels primarily made with French oak sourced from our family's stave mill in France. I'm very proud of this wine, I hope you enjoy it. Contains Sulfites. Alc. 13.5% by vol.
