The Napa Valley Fumé Blanc by Robert Mondavi from sunny California is a wonderful, smooth white wine from the Sauvignon Blanc (96%) and Semillon (4%) grape varieties.
The clear straw yellow colour of this wine is interspersed with golden highlights. The elegant bouquet unfolds lively aromas of lime peel, fresh lemongrass, followed by jasmine and orange blossoms, sun-ripened citrus fruits (lemon, lime) and subtle notes of summery flower meadow. A vibrantly refreshing, aromatically concentrated, expressive, full-bodied and at the same time round, supple feeling fills the palate. This American white wine concludes with a long, persistent reverberation.
Vinification of Mondavi Fumé Blanc After harvestingthe
grapes, they are immediately taken to Robert Mondavi's wine cellar and pressed there as a whole. The must is divided before fermentation: one third is fermented in stainless steel tanks - two thirds are fermented in French oak barrels. This gives it its creamy structure and the aromas are beautifully integrated.
After the fermentation process is complete, this white wine is aged in French oak barrels for 4 months on the fine yeast. The fine yeast store is regularly stirred (Bâtonnage).
