Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay 2019, California

Chardonnay from USA
Review Date : 04-Apr-2022
Bright, medium yellow with a gold hue, even colour throughout. This has a gentle, coy bouquet, slowly releasing vibrant aromas of pineapple, papaya, Meyer lemon and oak spices, and underlying roasted nuts. Full-bodied, succulent tropical fruit of pineapple, papaya and Meyer lemon packed the palate, seasoned with warming spice, toast and roasted cashew. The fruit is vivid with excellent acidity, brightens the palate and draws a long, juicy line to the finish. Toasted oak melded harmoniously with creaminess provides a round mouthfeel. This is a juicy, tropical-fruited Chardonnay with weight and presence. Match with grilled kingfish and roasted turkey over the next 5 years. Barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc, aged 7 months in French (5% new) and American oak (7% new), aged on lees. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Apr 2022 RRP $35
