Woodbridge Pinot Grigio White 2009
We harvested the grapes during the cool of the night, when their acidity is highest, for vibrancy in the wine. At the winery, we immediately pressed the grapes as whole clusters to capture the fresh, flavorful Sauvignon Blanc character. We cool-fermented the juice in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to accentuate the pure fruit expression. To develop rich texture, we aged the wine on the yeast (called sur lie) with frequent stirring.
Thirty years ago, Robert Mondavi set out to establish a wine culture in America by putting great California wine on every table. Invigorated by the success of Robert Mondavi Winery in the Napa Valley, in 1979 he established the Woodbridge Winery near his childhood home of Lodi, California.
External Reviews for Woodbridge Pinot Grigio White
Crisp and fruity, with grassy pear, herb and lemon notes that are complex and delicate. This is the best Mondavi Woodbridge release in several years and a great value at the price. Ready now.
Made in a grassy, herbal style, although it finishes with hints of ripe melon. Light-textured, with moderate body. Drink now.
Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and lively, displaying vibrant citrus, pear and tropical fruit character, with hints of mineral and lemongrass. - Winery
This is a clean, crisp sauvignon blanc, with a pleasant sweetness that makes it a good aperitif.
This white wine gets a little extra substance from being aged on the lees. Nice acidity plays off tropical fruits and herbal aromas.
Likeable for its extreme dryness and crisp acidity, and the way the citrus fruits and minerals tickle the palate and prepare it for food. It's a great cocktail wine, with lime, Meyer lemon, white peach and floral flavors.
Food Pairings for Woodbridge Pinot Grigio White
A lively, crisp wine, our 2009 Sauvignon Blanc offers hints of fresh cut grass and tart citrus on the nose, accented by tropical fruit aromas. On the palate, the wine yields slightly more complex citrus notes that include pink grapefruit and lime zest. The perfect companion to a range of seafood or pasta dishes, this wine also pairs well with a green salad topped with fresh goat cheese or ripe tomato and basil bruschetta. It is also wonderful on its own as a summer day draws to a close.
