Kendall Jackson Avant Chardonnay Chardonnay Sonoma County 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Chardonnay Avant is a plump, juicy offering with lovely up-front richness and a fresh, vibrant personality meant to be enjoyed over the next 1-2 years. It is a delicious wine for the money. The Avant is made in a fresher, more vibrant style than the Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay.- Wine Advocate

  Jess Stonestreet Jackson, founder of Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates, was a legend in the wine industry. Thanks to his dedication and skill, he popularized Chardonnay in the United States, with the best-selling Chardonnay in America for over 20 years. In 1983, just one year after he founded Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates, his Chardonnay won the first double Platinum Award ever given by the American Wine Competition. Jackson passed away on April 21, 2011, at the age of 81, leaving behind the highest-selling brand of “super-premium” wine in the United States. In 1974, Jess Jackson and his wife, Jane Kendall, purchased and converted a pear and walnut orchard in Lakeport, California into a vineyard. In 1982, a downturn in the grape market discouraged Jackson from selling grapes, so he took the opportunity to create his own winery, Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates. This was a wise decision, since today, with 14,000 acres across California’s Sonoma County and numerous distinctions, Kendall-Jackson is one of the most successful wineries in America. Read less
