2009 Robert Mondavi Napa Chardonnay
|A beautiful Chardonnay at an amazing price. Only $13.99 at Costco. This is my style of Chardonnay. It’s not overly buttery or oaky. The winemakers used a combination of stainless steel and French oak which balances out quite nicely and let’s the nice fruit really come through.|
Flavors of tropical fruit, peach and lemon; perfect blend of acidity. Nothing overbearing, just straightforward and easy to enjoy. Love the finish, a nice tart that hangs around.
This is a wine for Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc fans alike. I’m a fan, and while tasting it I thought I had paid closer to $20 for it and I was still happy. It’s going on the Bronze list.
