A brilliant straw color in the glass. This is classic California Chardonnay – rich aromas and flavors of ripe peach, fleshy tropical fruits, and honeyed floral notes, all wrapped up in a cloak of buttery shortbread and spice from oak aging. It coats the palate and lingers at the finish, echoing the sweet buttered fruit. This bottling is an archetypal example of the style that made the name Kendall-Jackson synonymous with crowd-pleasing New World Chardonnay.
