Robert Mondavi Private Selection Bourbon Barrel-Aged Chardonnay 2019
The Bourbon Barrel-Aged Chardonnay is rich and layered with expressive character from its unique aging. This wine is crafted with grapes from the cool coastal California vineyards, imparting aromas of ripe pineapple, peaches and toasted coconut with rich, creamy flavours. It is well-blanaced with bright acidity.
The selected lots are then aged in bourbon whiskey barrels selected from a renowned Kentucky distillery, delivering a twist of caramel, vanilla and subtle toasted oak when added to the blend.
In order for a wine to qualify as a varietal in the United States, it must be produced from 75% of that varietal. When crafting Chardonnay, vintners often blend in other grape varieties (Chenin Blanc, Coombard and Semillon) to achieve their desired style. At Robert Mondavi, their 100% are exceptions. The 100% Chardonnay is made only with Chardonnay grapes, picked at the peak of ripeness from California vineyards for a pure and full expression of the classical varietals
Look out for other Chardonnay we have!
