Vivid, crisp and bright, the 2011 Kendall-Jackson Avant Chardonnay continues our nearly three decades of pioneering distinguished varietal wines from California's cool coastal appellations. With flavors that mirror California's fog-laden coastline, this wine achieves a balance of vibrancy and complexity through gentle whole-cluster pressing and fermentation in a combination of neutral oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. The subtle use of neutral oak adds a graceful structure while cool stainless steel fermentation preserves the fresh, intense fruit flavors inherent to Chardonnay grown along the coastline.
This refreshing Chardonnay erupts with captivating layers of fresh pineapple, bright green apple, crisp Meyer lemon, juicy pear and wildflowers. It shows refreshing acidity and sleek mineral notes which are balanced by a rounded mid-palate and a long, pure fruit finish.
