Robert Mondavi ‘Private Selection’ California Chardonnay 2015

Chardonnay from USA
Review Date : 26-Jan-2017
Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, paler on the rim. The nose is softly full with gentle aromas of ripe citrus fruit unfolding fresh stonefruit elements. The fruit is entwined with notes of nutty oak and lees, with suggestions of musk, butter and lemon-curd MLF. Medium-full bodied, the palate has light, refreshing flavours of citrus and yellow stonefruits along with nutty oak and hints of musk and buttery MLF elements. The flavours build to form a moderately concentrated core and the wine flows along a dry, textural line with good underlying acidity. The wine carries to a crisp, sustained finish of citrus fruits and nuts. This is a fresh Chardonnay with citrus, stonefruit and nutty flavours, and a dry, textured mouthfeel and line. Serve with seafood and poultry over the next 3 years. California fruit, 95% Chardonnay, 3% Muscat Canelli and 2% Riesling, WBP and tank-fermented to 13.5% alc., 70% of the wine aged 8 months in French oak with MLF. 16.5/20 Jan 2017 RRP $19.99
