Robert Mondavi Winery Sauvignon Blanc Woodbridge 2003

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Understated but fresh and easy. Nothing complicated, but presents clean melon and pear notes. Finishes light and largely dry.

  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.

Nice for your next block party, an affordable wine with crisp apple, citrus and wildflower flavors that's dry and clean.

Appley, with citrus and peach flavors, and very dry. The clean fruit flavors are highlighted by refreshing acidity. It finishes on a sweet-spicy green-apple note.

Made in a very dry, very crisp style, making it different from the run-of-the-mill, slightly sweet PGs, and that makes it a really nice wine. With rich citrus, fig, melon and spice flavors, it's a great cocktail sipper, and will go with a wide variety of food. Easy to find, with 300,000 cases produced.

Where too many Pinot Grigios are sweet and sugary, this one's dry, and it has a crisp acidity that makes the mouth water. The flavors are of ripe Meyer lemons, limes, minerals, honeysuckle flowers and vanilla. Great with Asian-fusion fare.
