Robert Mondavi Winery Fumé Blanc

Robert Mondavi Winery Fumé Blanc Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: Robert Mondavi 2005 Napa Valley Fumé Blanc displays bright citrus, pineapple, lemon grass, floral and mineral notes that enliven the aromas and cascade across the palate. Barrel-fermentation and gentle stirring during aging in French oak barrels enhanced the elegant, spicy finish.

Varietal Definition
This French-American hybrid typically produces light red wine with low acidity. Also known as Seibel 13053, this blue grape is employed by a few wineries in New York State. The grape's early ripening capabilities are a benefit to northeast growers, but its extreme susceptibility to virus infection will limit plantings of the vine
