Kendall Jackson Avant Chardonnay 2014
Wine EnthusiastLots of fresh apple flavors, a crisp balance and smooth mouthfeel make this light-bodied wine refreshing and fun to drink. It has some richness on the midpalate and finish, but basically keeps its lively, tangy personality going.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay Avant, their naked version of Chardonnay fermented in neutral wood and stainless-steel tanks. There are 151,000 cases of this beauty that comes from Sonoma, Monterey, Mendocino and Santa Barbara. The wine shows crisp, elegant, pure pear and tropical fruit notes (including pineapple), medium body and good purity, acidity and liveliness. It's a rather amazing wine for the price and the quantity.
