2017 Mondavi Napa Chardonnay

July 17, 2020 - Norman Bentley

I have enjoyed Robert Mondavi wines for several decades, and it was one of the highlights of my career in the wine business, to have met the "Wine King of Napa" some years back at a tasting dinner in Atlanta. I am glad to see by this latest offering of Chardonnay, that the winery has been able to continue the tradition. I must confess that my favorite white from these folks, is their Napa Fume Blanc, but the 2017 Napa Chardonnay does not have to take a backseat to any other offering.

The wine has a heady nose, which opens the door to a burst of flavors, ranging from ripe pear, to crisp apple, peach, and a kiss of lemon peel. The finish is clean and lingering, with a slight oak accent. The alcohol content is 14.5%, and Norm's score is 88.

A bottle of Mondavi Napa Valley Chardonnay would make a good companion at any table, from exquisite gourmet cuisine, to the most simple fare. We enjoyed it with Chicken Piccata.

score: 88

price: $19 - $24
