Well framed with expressive citrus, delicate pear and green apple notes, JAX Y3 Chardonnay offers lovely aromatics and fresh acidity. The 2017 vintage reflects the complete expression of a picture-perfect vintage. Celebrating three generations of land-tilling, wine-loving Jacksons, siblings Kimberly and Trent are proud to present Y3, a wine as special as the memories of their grandparents‘ cattle ranch.
Our Chardonnay grapes are sourced from a single vineyard in Carneros benefiting from the cooling effects of the Pacific Ocean. This cooler micro climate coupled with concrete tank fermentation imparts an expressive yet bright and balanced mouthfeel on the palette. Limiting Malolactic Fermentation to less than 10%, Kirk Venge highlights the underlying quality fruit and minerality.
