Winemaker's Notes:

Appearance: Soft, pale straw in color Aroma: Aromas of zesty citrus and green apple mingle with a hint of coconut and subtle oak. Tasting Notes: Fresh and youthful with lively acidity and abundant fruit. Richly layered flavors unfold in the mouth: lemon, green apple, pear, pineapple and crème brulee. Appellation: Napa Valley Grape Sourcing: 74% Los Carneros AVA remainder: 19% Napa Valley, 2.9% Sonoma, 2.3% West Napa Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay Winemaker Notes: Winemaking: • Hand-harvested in cool morning hours • Whole-cluster pressed to retain maximum fruitiness and delicacy • 80% barrel-fermented (16% new oak), remainder in stainless steel tanks • Partial malolactic fermentation to fine tune acids and textural balance • Nearly 6 months aging sur lie in French oak barrels (16% new oak)

  The Robert Mondavi Winery was founded in 1966 after a family split with the Charles Krug Winery, which had been founded by Robert’s father.  After heading out on his own, Robert settled on land in Napa valley, and in particular the famed To Kalon Vineyard in the Rutherford district. The original plot in To Kalon Vineyard was only 12 acres, but today there are 450 acres under vine. The Robert Mondavi Winery also includes the Wappo Hill Vineyard, which is a 400 acre plot in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley. Within a year of its inception, the Robert Mondavi Winery proved to be a true pioneer, not only with the establishment of his winery but also by introducing and popularizing the use of French oak barrels for wine, European wine techniques, and the bottling of varietal wines. Robert Mondavi Winery only uses French Oak barrels for storing wine, and his influence and success led to the practice’s prevalence. Among Mondavi’s greatest successes one would have to count the creation of the Fume Blanc moniker for Sauvignon Blanc as well as the introduction of his benchmark Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet. Today Robert Mondavi’s legacy is carried on under the watchful eye of his wife who works with the current winemakers Genevieve Janssens, Gustavo Gonzalez, and Richard Arnold to ensure that today’s Robert Mondavi wines deliver the elegance, appeal, and character that Robert had intended.
