Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Chardonnay White Wine
We love how this Chardonnay begins with a burst of tropical fruit, evocative of pineapple and citrus. These vibrant flavors fan out across the palate and turn creamy on the lingering finish. Spicy notes, reminiscent of baked apple with cinnamon and vanilla, weave through the wine's aromas and richly-textured flavors. Grapes for this wine come from California's historic Lodi region. Served chilled, this Chardonnay tastes great with grilled halibut and saffron couscous, roasted chicken with herbs, mushroom frittata, pork loin with apples, or seafood salad.
The harvest was intense and lengthy, lasting from early August to mid-November. Luckily, the long, exhausting hours of Robert Mondavi were rewarded with high quality grapes. Spring rains continued well into June - an unusual phenomenon in the Lodi region - promoting lush vine canopies (leaves and shoots) and a large crop. Mother Nature was as kind as she could be to us; we had ideal weather during harvest, said Marilyn Wolf, Director of Grower Relations. The flavor, maturity and overall quality is excellent.
