Chardonnay - Carneros
WINEMAKING
After harvest, we gently whole-cluster press our chardonnay grapes and put the free run juice in French oak barrels to undergo 100% barrel fermentation. Here we depart from convention by performing a simultaneous primary and malolacticfermentation. The simultaneous fermentation helps preserve the delicate floral aromatics of Chardonnay while weaving beautiful fruit and creamy texture into a perfect marriage of richly layered flavors in the finished wine. Post fermentation, the wine spends nine months sur-lie aging in barrel with lees stirring once a month for added texture.

TASTING NOTES
The wine displays a light golden hue in the glass with delicate aromas of pear, apple, vanilla, and honey. In the mouth, the wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced, with acidity and a toasty mid-palate in harmony with fresh fruit flavors. The wine finishes gracefully and invites you back for more.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS
The Isabel Mondavi Chardonnay is an ideal complement to a variety of dishes thanks to its lively acidity, layered fruit, and impeccable balance. Pair with white meats, baked fish, and cheeses made from cow or goat milk.
