'Tropical flavors such as mango and pineapple dance with aromas of peach, apple and pear. Richly layered and balanced throughout. Lightly buttered toast headlines the indulgent, lingering finish.' - Randy Ullom, Winemaster

'Rich tropical fruit intertwines with grapefruit, lemon and candied lime peel. Elegantly layered, this wine exhibits a lush texture and firm backbone with a hint of vanilla and cinnamon spice to round out the long finish.' - Randy Ullom, Winemaster

America’s favorite Chardonnay, in Reserve! A slightly drier, more elegant style than the classic Vintner’s series, the Grand Estates still showcases the heavy-handed oak and fresh tropical fruit that are hallmarks of the variety.

Kendall-Jackson’s 2011 Chardonnay Grand Reserve caresses the palate with dried pears, flowers and sweet spices. Next to the other 2011 Chardonnays in the range, the Grand Reserve places more emphasis on depth, structure and richness. An expressive, caressing finish rounds things out very nicely. The 2011 is made from Santa Barbara and Monterey County fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2016.


Winemaker's Notes:

"Grand Reserve wines are crafted from 100% Jackson Estates Grown grapes which are hand-selected from our vineyard estates. These wines capture the regional expression of the vineyard blocks that we look to year after year. In the winery, artisan winemaking techniques prevail, and aging takes place in small French oak barrels. From California's breathtaking coastal winegrowing regions, our winemakers draw a rich palette of aromas and flavors to handcraft wines of exceptional depth and complexity. Grand Reserve wines offer rich regional expression and depth of varietal character. Kendall-Jackson literally turns the winemakers loose in the cellar, drawing off the top three percent of our Estate Grown barrel lots to make Grand Reserve wines. The Grand Reserve wines are the superlative expression of our Vintner's Reserve blending process, more elegantly focused and featuring fruit from just one or two of the top appellations." -Winery
