Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Chardonnay 2018
With an aroma of green apple and a floral undertone, the Woodbridge Chardonnay displays a smooth elegance. The aromas and flavors show nuances of baked apples and cinnamon, ending in a rich oak finish. This flavorful, textured wine is great to enjoy with friends over appetizers, such as crab cakes or prawn skewers. You can also try this Chardonnay with smoked salmon, grilled chicken, creamy pastas, and stuffed clams.
By pressing the grapes as whole clusters it's possible to retain the purity and freshness of the intense fruit flavors. The juice is cool-fermented in stainless steel tanks to highlight the fresh, vibrant character of the wine. Allowing only a small part of the wine to complete malolactic fermentation helped achieve mouthfilling richness balanced with vibrant natural acidity. Oak aging on the lees for five to six months enriched the wine's texture and complexity and added just a hint of sweet vanilla and spice.
