The Chardonnay Reserve by Robert Mondavi from the sunny, American wine region Napa Valley is an outstanding, grape-varietal white wine.
In the glass, this wine shines in a rich straw yellow with golden highlights. The aromatic-intensive bouquet is dominated by fruity aromas of juicy pear, crisp apples and fresh, summer-ripe citrus fruits - accompanied by fine hints of marzipan.
The palate enjoys this white wine with its rich, creamy texture and a voluminous body. The fresh citrus notes of the palate merge with the elegant acidity to create a balanced, full-bodied taste. The finale is wonderfully persistent and convinces with very good length.
Vinification of Mondavi Napa Valley Chardonnay Reserve
The grapes for this white wine are harvested by hand in September in the vineyards of Los Carneros. Arriving in the wine cellar, the harvested material is strictly selected and pressed as a whole. Fermentation in wooden barrels is carried out at cool temperatures. During malolactic fermentation, the yeast storage is stirred twice a week in this wine. Finally, this wine matures for a total of 12 weeks in French oak barrels (77% new wood).
Food recommendation for the Napa Valley Robert Mondavi Reserve Chardonnay
