About the Wine:

America's #1 selling Chardonnay for 25 years and counting! It's no wonder Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay is our most popular release. Handcrafted in small vineyard lots throughout the entire winemaking process, our grapes are from California’s cool, coastal growing regions. Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay is fruit-forward, divinely complex, approachable and exceptionally food-friendly.

Ratings & Reviews:
91 Points & #28 Top 100 of 2017 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Plush, with loads of richness to the well-honed flavors of beeswax, baked pear and lemon tart. Minerally midpalate, with a fresh and zesty finish that finishes with pastry notes. Drink now through 2020. 100,000 cases made." – KM (Jun 15, 2017)

91 Points & "Editors’ Choice" - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"A staple of California winemaking, this vintage is as good as ever—perfectly polished, with light aromas of toasted oak and crisp green apple, lemon-lime and tempting butter flavors, and a medium-bodied frame. The texture is silky smooth, and everything tastes harmonious and balanced." -
Jim Gordon (7/1/2017)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"There are two million cases (basically the equivalent of 100,000 barrels, and all hand stirred) of the 2015 Chardonnay Vintner’s Reserve. Eighty percent of this wine comes from the estate vineyards, most of them in Monterey, but to a lesser extent, in Santa Barbara, Mendocino and Sonoma. It goes through 100% barrel fermentation, with the breakdown on the barrels 44% French (5% new) and 53% American wood (8% new). It is bottled after seven months to preserve its exuberant fruit characteristics, which readers will find in its round, delicious, ripe peach, delicate honeysuckle and tropical fruit notes. It is a medium-bodied, crisp, amazing Chardonnay. With some two million cases, I’m sure some retailers will stock it in warmer areas of their stores, but when you can find pristine bottles, this wine does deliver. It has only one gram per liter of residual sugar, which destroys the false narrative of its critics that it’s very sweet. It is actually quite dry." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (28th Oct 2016)

Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Kendall-Jackson's flagship 2015 Chardonnay Vintner's Reserve is a model of consistency. Soft, supple and open-knit, with lovely tropical fruit, white flower and butter notes, the Vintner's Select is a pretty wine to drink over the next 2-3 years." - Antonio Galloni (Mar 2017)
