Handcrafted from grapes grown in Jackson Estates cool coastal vineyards. The complexities of flavor come from the various growing regions.

“Foggy mornings, warm afternoons and cool nights promote slow ripening for amazing fruit with amazing flavor concentration and natural acidity.” KJ Chardonnay video

Citrus and lime flavors stem from Monterey Country (51%). Santa Barbara County (47%) offers tropical flavors of mango and pineapple. Sonoma County (2%) presents the flavors of apple and pear.

Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay is fermented and aged in small French and American oak barrels. Sur Lie aging gives this Chardonnay its creamy mouthfeel. Balanced fruit forward, hit of toasted oak.

Pineapple, mango, papaya and citrus notes. Vanilla and honey aromas. Hint of toasted oak. Long lingering finish. – Randy Ullom, Winemaster
