Tasting Notes

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.

This is a concentrated and layered concrete-fermented white. Apple, pear and mango figure into the flavor profile, with a dusting of nutmeg and clove tones.
