Robert Mondavi's Chardonnay Napa Valley grapes grow in the sunny California wine region. This grape varietal white wine delights with lively freshness and smooth texture.
This wine shines in a clear straw yellow with light golden reflections. Intense, enticingly fruity aromas characterize the bouquet: crispy apple, juicy pear, ripe melon and fresh quinces - underlaid by white flowers, a hint of vanilla and some nutmeg. The aroma of the bouquet blends seamlessly into the palate, creating a round, lush, creamy mouthfeel that is perfectly balanced by a crisp acidity. The reverberation of elegant length completes this American white wine perfectly.
Vinification of Mondavi Napa Valley Chardonnay
Throughout September, the Chardonnay grapes for this white wine are harvested in the early morning hours. Once in the wine cellar, the harvested material is gently pressed. This wine is vinified and aged both in stainless steel tanks (20%) and in French oak wooden barrels (80%). With regular Bâtonnage (stirring of the yeast) this wine matures for 8 months on the fine yeast.
