Beautifully integrated tropical flavors such as pineapple, mango, and papaya with citrus notes that explode in your mouth. These flavors delicately intertwine with aromas of vanilla and honey to create depth and balance throughout. A hint of toasted oak and butter rounds out the long, lingering finish.
Kendall Jackson Chardonnay Vintner's Reserve is a blend of Chardonnay grapes grown in multiple regions along California's cooler, Western coast, providing a balanced blend of citrus notes and tropical aromas. In addition to the typical nose of pineapple, lime, and mango, this Chardonnay also includes richer notes of papaya, honey, vanilla, and toast from the five month American and French oak aging, as well as the sur lie aging and monthly battonage.
A balanced Chardonnay such as this with a lingering finish pairs excellently with dairy based foods and rich seafood dishes such as cheeses, Alfredo sauces, lobster, langoustine, buttered scampi, or a fish risotto. This wine has undergone whole cluster pressing, meaning that the slight bitterness of the stems linger with the creaminess in this balanced wine to cut through heartier dishes, typically more difficult to pair wine with.
Like classic Californian Chardonnays, this wine also includes notes of ripe green apple, pear, and slight notes of banana that everyone loves from this region. Uniquely about Kendall Jackson is their commitment to sustainability and green farming, as they have reduced their water consumption up to one-third of average vineyards, run their own solar panels for power, and grow all of their vines 100% certified sustainable. Since 1982, this winery has been family run and dedicated to quality over quantity winemaking.
