Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay Avant 2011
Kendall-Jackson makes the top selling Chardonnay wines in the country due to their consistency of fruit coming from the coastline of California, great value, and combination of tropical fruits layered with wildflowers, sleek minerality, and refreshing acidity. "Vivid, crisp and bright, the 2011 Kendall-Jackson Avant Chardonnay continues our nearly three decades of pioneering distinguished varietal wines from California's cool coastal appellations."Winery Website
External Reviews for Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay Avant
There’s a mellow, honeyed richness to this Chardonnay, with apricot, orange, mango and vanilla flavors making it especially tasty. It’s a flamboyant, complex wine at a great price, and easy to find, with 84,000 cases produced.
Clean and refreshing, with lively quince, green apple, citrus and spice notes. Turns simple on the finish. Drink now.
The 2011 Chardonnay Avant is another tasty, accessible, entry-level white. Lemon, pastry and white flowers all take shape in the glass. The Avant is aged 60% in steel, which is meant to differentiate it from the flagship Vintner’s Reserve in this part of the price range, but I don’t see quite the distinctiveness this wine showed last year. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2016.
