Winemaker Notes

Intense primary aromas of lemongrass mingle with the subtle scent of lime blossoms and hints of sage and spice. Mouthfilling flavors of crisp yellow peach are couched in a very smooth, rounded texture. Thanks to the small Sauvignon Blanc yields of 2008, flavors are concentrated and the wine is already very expressive in its youth.

Pale, bright straw. Musky pineapple, citrus peel, fresh herbs and licorice on the nose, with enticing floral lift. Densely packed, sweet and bright, with noteworthy fruit intensity for a basic bottling. Finishes with very good length. Not quite complex enough for an outstanding rating but this would make a very flexible dinner-table wine. Genevieve Janssens notes that as of vintage 1999, Mondavi has practiced "green juice winemaking" for its sauvignon blanc and "brown juicy winemaking" for its chardonnay-i.e., preserving sauvignon against oxidation at every step of winemaking and elevage while encouraging the oxidizable enzyme in chardonnay to oxidize and fall out of the wine during the vinification.
