Kendall Jackson Sauvignon Blanc Vitner's Reserve 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Luscious honeysuckle, ripe pear and fresh lemon grass intertwine in this medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc. Hints of fresh lime complements the subtle mineral quality while added layers of fig and honeysuckle round out this crisp, aromatic wine." -Winery

  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

A little cheesy on the nose with ripe pineapple and tangerine aromas topped with a gentle floral note. Tart and simple in the mouth with a bit of a thick feel to the vaguely orange and mango flavors that show modest depth. The acidity adds a light lime note on the finish before this disappears quickly on the modest finish. Remarkably neutral. 80pts
