Robert Mondavi Winery Johannisberg Riesling Monterey County Private Selection NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2005 Riesling exudes the fresh apple pear orange blossom and litchi fruit aromas that make Rieslings grown in cool-climates so delightful. Monterey Countys long cool growing season produced grapes with especially concentrated flavors giving our 2005 Riesling an impressive weight on the palate despite its moderate alcohol content.

  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.

Our 2008 Pinot Grigio boasts an enticing aroma of fresh ripe pears with appealing peach vanilla and floral spice scents adding complexity. Round and creamy on the palate it has the typical tonic water pear and tart lemon flavors culminating in a full lingering finish that invites pairing with food. A pretty wine with lots of delicate flavors enjoy our Pinot Grigio with crab cakes California sushi rolls grilled chicken breasts pasta primavera or Caesar salad. Or savor it as a delicious apritif sipping wine.

In 2007 a dry and cool growing season helped our Central Coast Chardonnay grapes enjoy an extended period maturing on the vine resulting in fruit with impressively concentrated flavors. The natural richness of our Chardonnay was enhanced by partial barrel and malolactic fermentation coupled with extended aging on the yeast lees resulting in a luscious complex wine. The nose reveals ripe apple melon citrus and tropical fruit aromas enriched by creamy malolactic tones spicy French oak nuances and enticing baked bread scents. On the mouthfilling creamy palate rich tropical fruit flavors buttressed by toasty oak tones create a lush impression which is balanced by a long crisp finish imbued with the refreshing minerality typical of Central Coast Chardonnay. Enjoy this delicious wine with rich seafood poultry and pork dishes white-sauce pastas like fettuccine Alfredo and flavorful soft-ripening cheeses.
