K-J Avant


Kendall-Jackson AVANT offers a fresh new take on Chardonnay. Bright and refreshing, with a crisp, lean palate, K-J AVANT reveals only slight oak flavors resulting from fermentation in both neutral oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. Impeccably balanced and food-friendly, this fresh, vibrant wine defines a new benchmark of California Chardonnay.

Kendall-Jackson AVANT continues our nearly three decades of pioneering distinguished varietal wines from California's cool coastal appellations. K-J AVANT takes its name from the French word for "before" and reflects the vibrant expression of the fruit before oak has the chance to impart much flavor.

Vivid, crisp and bright, the inaugural release of Kendall-Jackson AVANT continues our nearly three decades of pioneering distinguished varietal wines from California’s cool coastal appellations. With flavors that mirror California’s fog-laden coastline, this wine achieves a balance of vibrancy and complexity through gentle whole-cluster pressing and fermentation in a combination of older oak barrels and stainless steel. The subtle use of neutral oak adds a graceful structure while cool stainless steel fermentation preserves the fresh, intense fruit flavors inherent to Chardonnay grown along the coastline.
