Winemaker's Notes

The Grand Reserve wines from Kendall-Jackson are superlative expression of the art of blending terroir from key vineyard sources. Each harvest, the tri-county appellation percentage varies and the subtle nuances that winemaking adds achieve the proper balance of grace. It is this harmony of terroir and winemaking skill that makes these wines outstanding.

The 2004 Grand Reserve Chardonnay is lush and tropical with bright citrus notes and ripe apple flavors. Sur lie aged, and beautifully balanced, this Chardonnay is richly layered with elegance and a creamy texture enhanced from the gentle stirring of the lees. A delight for the senses.

This wine is particularly exceptional in that all the Chardonnay grapes were grown on vineyards that we own or control via a long-term lease or similar arrangement. Controlling our own vineyards ensures that our precision farming methods are used to manage our Grand Reserve blocks. We know that our grapes are handled with the utmost care and are harvested at the peak of their maximum potential.

Robert Parker of the Wine Advocate said that this Chardonnay is "a serious, unmistakably California Chardonnay exhibiting loads of honeyed tropical fruit, medium to full body, and admirable freshness as well as texture" and awarded this wine 91/100 points.
