"This is a light, delicate white, with aromas of honeysuckle and Meyer lemon zest. High in acidity, it invites green apple and pear flavors on the palate, bolstered by seasonings of lemongrass and ginger. It'll please a crowd or excel at starting off a meal."
JAX’s Y3 Chardonnay is bright yet complex, sourced from a single vineyard in Carneros that is influenced by the cooling effect of the Pacific Ocean. Concrete tank fermented, 11 months in 100% neutral French barrel with 5-10% malolactic.
Established in 1996, JAX is the collaboration of father and son, David and Trent Jackson. Together they made their first vintage from David’s ten acre dry-farmed vineyard in Calistoga, Napa Valley. In 2003, Trent’s sister Kimberly joined the family business, first by critically hiring winemaker Kirk Venge.
In 2006, JAX introduced the Y3 brand to engage a wider audience with myriad varieties. The “Y3” symbol was the cattle symbol on the Jackson’s grandparents’ cattle ranch, Yarrayne, on the Gold Coast of Australia. The “3” pays homage to three generations of land-tilling entrepreneurs. Fruit-forward profiles are driven by top-quality fruit from esteemed Napa and Sonoma Vineyards. Everything produced by JAX is hand-harvested, family-owned and earth-friendly.
