Kendall Jackson Chardonnay Vintners Rmp 89 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Layered aromas of green apples, peaches, honey and vanilla balance flavors of baked apples, lemon, pineapple and mango. A hint of spiced nuts and a suggestion of toasted oak round out the lingering finish.

  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

Kendall-Jackson's Vintner's lineup is renowned for sensational value, and the Chardonnay hits every mark. Plenty of varietal green apple and lemon-lime aromatics, with a bit of toasty oak.

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 rounds out the long, lingering finish. - Randy Ullom, WinemasterAppellation: CaliforniaComposition: 100% ChardonnayGrowing Regions:59% Monterey County30% Santa Barbara County6% Mendocino County5% Sonoma CountyAlcohol: 13.5%T.A.: 0.71/100mlpH: 3.39 ** SOLD OUT **

'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

The 2011 Chardonnay Vintner’s Reserve, from estate vineyards in Monterey and Santa Barbara, opens with attractive scents of sweet French oak, butter, honey and nectarine. An exceptional wine in its price range, the 2011 stands out for its balance and enveloping personality. It is simply mind-boggling to realize Kendall-Jackson makes over a million cases of this wine a year. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2016.

America’s favorite Chardonnay, the Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s is bold and rich, with lots of toasty, creamy oak notes and lush banana and tropical fruit notes. Always a favorite with roast chicken or turkey.
