Kendall-Jackson expanded its Avant wine collection to include a 2013 Sauvignon Blanc and a 2012 Red Blend. These new varietals join an existing 2013 Chardonnay to complete the collection. The Sauvignon Blanc is cold-fermented in stainless steel to preserve the grape’s fruit-forward aromas and flavors of lime, tangerine and passion fruit, the company says. The Red Blend is aged in neutral oak barrels and features fruit flavors complemented with hints of spice and dark chocolate, it adds. A 750-ml bottle of the Sauvignon Blanc retails for approximately $14, and a bottle of the Red Blend has a suggested retail price of $17.
