Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Chardonnay.

Fragrant aromas of jasmine, citrus and tropical fruits; fresh, crisp mouthfeel and a lingering finish. Kenwood has produced a delicious white table wine for over three decades. Blended from a combination of grapes from Sonoma County and other California appellations, this wine is delicious with a fruit/floral character and a refreshing finish.

The Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in stainless steel to preserve its lively and fruity character.

The Chardonnay, fermented in French oak, adds weight to the mouthfeel as well as hints of sweet vanilla and toast. After fermentation these lots were blended together to form a delicious, well balanced wine.

The crisp, bright fruit flavors of this versatile wine are perfect when served as an aperitif or with salads, fruit and cheese, light pasta dishes and fish.

About Kenwood Vineyards:

Located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley, Kenwood Vineyards is dedicated to producing premium wines truly representative of Sonoma County’s world-class vineyards.

Kenwood Vineyards was established in 1970 in the former Pagani Brothers Winery, a historic cellar dating back to 1906. Thoroughly refurbished and modernized, the facility now boasts more than 125 stainless steel fermenting tanks and large oak uprights, and 20,000 small French and American oak barrels, all devoted to Kenwood Vineyards’ “small lot” style of winemaking.

In addition to the 22-acre vineyard surrounding the winery, Kenwood Vineyards sources grapes from dozens of vineyards – many farmed sustainably, using natural soil amendments and pest controls whenever possible rather than chemicals - in Sonoma County’s best appellations, including Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma Valley and Sonoma Mountain. Each lot from each vineyard is kept separate throughout the winemaking process, enabling the winemaker to bring it to its fullest potential. This “small lot” or “cuvee” style of winemaking also enables the winemaker to draw on an exceptionally broad “palette” to assemble wines that showcase classic character, subtle complexity and superb balance. As a result, every Kenwood Vineyards wine – whether Table Wine Series, Sonoma Series, Reserve, Jack London Vineyard or Artist Series – is consistent in quality and consistently delicious.
