Robert Mondavi Winery Chardonnay Napa Valley

Wine Details

Wine Description

The natural roundness 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 lemon blossom, green apple, and peach aromas with smoky oak nuances along with enticing vanilla spice and smoky oak flavors. The creamy, mouthfilling palate creates a lush impression and is balanced by a rich, lingering finish.

The 2005 Robert Mondavi Winery Chardonnay is a fresh, youthful wine, with lively acidity and abundant fruit. Aromas of zesty citrus, green apple and tropical coconut are enhanced by the subtle use of oak. Ripe layers of fruit flavors unfold in the glass, with citrus and green apple leading to pear and pineapple. In the background, smoky oak deepens into crème brulée.
