Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 94.8% Sauvignon Blanc, 4.7% Semillon, .5% Sauvignon Musque

"Lime, melon and Anjou pears intermingle with sweet and tropical fruits such as fig and kiwi to create this delightfully refreshing wine. Hints of grapefruit highlight the mineral qualities of this wine's suprisingly long finish."
- Randy Ullom, Winemaster

About Kendall-Jackson:

Back in 1974, Jess Jackson saw in the fine vineyards of California's cool coastal regions fruit with a variety of outstanding flavors. What if there was a way to produce from this abundance, a single outstanding "cuvée" that offered both quality and value? The result, first released in 1983, was Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay, a rich, round and flavorful wine, made with hand-crafted methods. That same year, Grand Reserve was introduced, a line of ultra-premium wines that represented the full potential of California's finest vineyards and winemaking. Today, over 5,000 acres of vineyard in California's coastal regions are farmed by Kendall-Jackson. Four separate wineries house what is possibly the single largest barrel-fermentation project in the world. But perhaps most important, is that Kendall-Jackson remains a family-owned winery.
