Kendall-Jackson Vintners Reserve Chardonnay
The archetypal Californian Chardonnay, Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve has been one of the best-selling premium wines in its home State for many years, and has a strong international following too. With a superb balance of ripe fruit and toasty notes from barrel ageing, this ticks all the boxes! The wine is aged sur lie (on its lees) with monthly battonage, which really helps to amp up the creamy, buttery mouthfeel, without over-use of oak, allowing the wine to maintain a wonderful poise and exceptional balance.
“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.”
