Kendall-Jackson Low Calorie Chardonnay 85 Calories 2030

California, United StatesKendall-Jackson Low Calorie Chardonnay is a different kind of low-calorie wine. According to Kendall-Jackson winemaker Randy Ullom, the initial harvest of grapes is picked earlier to keep the primary sugar low. A secondary harvest later in the season brings complexity and concentration to the wine. It balances the structure in light of its lower alcohol and calories, namely nine percent alcohol and zero sugar, hence the 85 calories. The palate is a blend of grapefruit and other citrus with pineapple and a taut citrus lees that leads to subtle hazelnuts and vanilla in the finish. Its only drawback is a high level of acid, but for fans of New Zealand sauvignon blanc, it should be no problem. It is 78% barrel-fermented and aged in neutral French and American oak, drawing 41/31/28 fruit from Mendocino County/Monterey County/Santa Barbara County. If you want to lower your sugar and alcohol intake while drinking wine, this may be a possible alternative, mainly because it tastes like wine.Tasted: 22 November 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
