Celebrating its 50th vintage in 2015, Robert Mondavi’s barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc continues to impress. Launched at a time when Sauvignon Blanc wasn't held in high regard by Californian winemakers or consumers, the maverick marketing force pioneered the making and marketing of a dry wine inspired by the top expressions from the Loire Valley. Coming from the earliest harvest on record in the Napa Valley, this bright and layered white comes from two vineyards with long connections to the Mondavi winery. The refreshing fruit character and richer texture (thanks to barrel fermentation and the addition of four percent Sémillon) make for a nicely balanced white that’s great with white fish or shellfish dishes.
