Kendall-Jackson's incredible Chardonnay from their prime vineyards in the Central Coast never fails to deliver. The 2012 Grand Reserve Chardonnay is a blend of equal parts Santa Barbara and Monterey fruit, 100% Chardonnay was aged 9 months in primarily French oak, and was put through 100% barrel and malolactic fermentation with lots of lees stirring. Robert Parker scored the 2012 91 points saying "The 2012 Chardonnay Grand Reserve (200,000 cases produced) is composed of Monterey and Santa Barbara fruit that spent nine months in largely French oak as well as smaller quantities of American wood. One-third is new, and this cuvee is put through full malolactic fermentation as opposed to the other Chardonnays where it is generally partially or completely blocked. Copious quantities of tropical fruits, pineapples, mangoes, apricot marmalade and honeyed citrus are found in this clean white that finishes with good acidity and a distant minerality. It was the only Chardonnay in this tasting that revealed a touch of oak." Grab it while it's On Sale!
