Isabel Mondavi Chardonnay 2013 750mL
Freshly cut green apples with accents of caramelized brown sugar and French vanilla define the aromatics. The mouthfeel of the wine is electric with beautiful acidity and a true clarity of the Chardonnay grape. Partial malolactic fermentation preserved the remarkable freshness of the grape and aging in small French oak barrels provided depth and balance with extended character. This wine demonstrates a unique balance of firm acidity; authentic fruit; and a wonderful texture from the oak.
What started as a “just few cases of rosé for mom,” Isabel Mondavi Wines turned into an exciting new venture thanks to the food friendly wine style and attractive packaging. A true family affair, Isabel’s daughter, Dina, leads the packaging and blending, while Isabel’s son, winemaker Rob Mondavi Jr., manages the cellar. Isabel’s husband and wine industry veteran, Michael Mondavi, is the brand’s biggest cheerleader and fan.
