Simply a classic, 100% Chardonnay bringing together some of the best AVAs in the Napa Valley to build a balanced wine with just the right touch of opulence. Only 16% of the French Oak was new, keeping the oak influence well in hand and maintaining a lively, fresh acidity. Aromas of ripe pineapple and lemon cream rise above guava and zesty grapefruit, all wrapped in a toasty complexity that would be perfection with chicken pot pie.
Robert Mondavi founded his namesake winery in 1966 at the age of 53. He wasn't flush with cash, but he had a big dream. He envisioned that a more gracious lifestyle can be lead through the appreciation of wine, food and art. When he came to Oakville in the Napa Valley he saw the land upon which he could build his dream winery and make wines to stand shoulder to shoulder with the best wines from around the globe. Well, the Italian farm boy made good, launching what would become the first major winery in the Napa Valley after the end of Prohibition. Robert Mondavi Winery revolutionized the world of American wine by focusing on quality grape cultivation and embracing hospitality as a part of the wine business. At their Oakville estate, styled in homage to the missions of early California, the warm spirit of hospitality is ever present. Drop by, they'd love to see you.
An abundance of ripe stone and tropical fruit on the nose. It’s full-bodied with aromas and flavors of mango, yellow peach, salted butter and powdered praline. Lightly smoky with a crisp finish. Drink or hold.
