Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay Vintner's Reserve 2019

California, United StatesWinemaker Randy Ullom has does a fine job of keeping this wine in play, tightening the structure and restraining the sweetness as much as possible without upsetting its millions of customers. It is part of the new California chardonnay style. It all begins with some impressive fruit sourcing up and down the Golden State’s coolest hillside vineyards influenced by the Pacific Ocean from Mendocino to Santa Barbara. Look for a bright and lush palate of ripe peaches, a touch of caramel candy, and creamy, buttery lees all freshened by an acidity that sets off the tropical pineapple and Meyer lemon. Pair with lobster, crab, butter chicken, or popcorn.Tasted: 06 March 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: AB 23.00 private wine shops BC 23.99 BCLS ON 20.00 Vintages MB 19.00 QC 21.00 US 15.00 srp NB 27.50 Producer: Kendall-Jackson Vineyards and WineryDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
