Acclaim

*Wine & Spirits California Value Wine Brands of the Year June 16

Luke Sykora "In 2011, the same year that Jess Jackson passed away, the winery introduced Avant Chardonnay - a mostly steel aged alternative to the popular oak-aged Vintner's Reserve. The 2014 is delicious, with a fresh, peachy tang."

Winemaking

Whole cluster pressed to preserve fresh fruit character; 60% fermented in stainless steel tanks, 40% fermented in neutral oak barrels. Partial malolactic fermentation gives a rounder mid-palate to this wine.

Vineyards

Monterey County contributes lemony citrus and mineral notes.

Santa Barbara County delivers a dash of fresh pineapple flavors.

Mendocino County adds juicy green apple flavors.
