Continuing our theme of showing off our brand new wines this is another stonker! A Californian chardonnay with some real elegance to it...
When Jess Jackson produced his first Chardonnay in 1982, his goal was simply to create a wine that people of all levels of expertise could enjoy. Three decades later, the family owned and operated Kendall-Jackson is one of the most trusted and celebrated wineries in the world. For the last 21 consecutive years, the winery’s Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay has been the #1 selling Chardonnay in America.
One aspect that distinguishes Kendall-Jackson’s wines from their competitors is vineyard sourcing. Kendall-Jackson owns more than 12,000 acres located on the mountains, hillsides and benches of California’s greatest cool, coastal sub-regions throughout Sonoma, Napa, Monterey, Mendocino and Mendocino counties. Since 2011, all of these vineyards have been third-party certified sustainable by CCSW (Certified California Sustainable Winegrowing) and SIP (Sustainability in Practice).

Beautifully integrated tropical flavours such as pineapple, mango, and papaya with citrus notes that explode in your mouth. These flavours delicately intertwine with aromas of vanilla and honey to create depth and balance throughout. A hint of toasted oak rounds out the long, lingering finish.
If you're a chardonnay fan then you most definitely need to get a load of this!
