America's number 1 selling Chardonnay for 20 years and counting! The most popular release from Jackson wines, Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay is handcrafted from 100% Jackson Estates Grown grapes grown in vineyards along the cool coastal growing regions of Monterey County, Santa Barbara County, and Mendocino County.

Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay is fruit-forward, divinely complex, approachable and exceptionally food-friendly with a riot of tropical flavours such as pineapple, mango and papaya, with citrus notes, aromas of vanilla and honey and a hint of toasted oak and butter.

"Beautifully integrated tropical flavours such as pineapple, mango, and papaya with citrus notes that explode in your mouth. These flavours delicately intertwine with aromas of vanilla and honey to create depth and balance throughout. A hint of toasted oak rounds out the long, lingering finish."

- Randy Ullom, Winemaster

Crafted in small vineyard lots throughout the entire winemaking process. Whole cluster pressed to retain the fresh fruit qualities without the bitterness from stems and seeds. Fermented and aged in French and American oak barrels for richness, toastiness and complexity. Sur lie aging with monthly battonage (lees stirring) for a signature velvety texture and creamy flavour.

Jackson Family Wines is a collection of independent, premium wineries founded by the late Jess Jackson and his wife Barbara Banke; the company actively remains under the ownership of Barbara and her children Christopher, Julia and Katie. The family vision is to make luxury wines from the great wine growing regions of the world. In total they own approximately 14,000 acres of premium vineyards in California, all of which are coastal and from renowned regions such as Sonoma, Napa, Monterey, Mendocino and Santa Barbara. Jackson Family Wines also own wineries in St. Emilion, Chile, Tuscany and McLaren Vale.

The family describe themselves as temporary ‘stewards’ of the land and are at the forefront of the sustainability movement in the wine industry. Jess Jackson quickly understood the importance of ‘terroir’ and much of the success of the company has been built on his astute selection of vineyards. The Californian vineyards are located on mountains, ridges, hillsides and benches where the vine has to struggle to survive under difficult conditions producing a higher quality wine. High elevation and close proximity to the ocean both play a crucial role in moderating temperatures, resulting in greater flavour, concentration and complexity.

Kendall-Jackson was established in 1982 by Jess Jackson with the first vintage of Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay. It fast became one of the leading premium quality Californian wineries and has maintained this position by continually enhancing the quality of the wines.
