The Robert Mondavi 2020 Chardonnay is golden straw in colour and opens with aromas of key lime pie, honeysuckle, pineapple, crème brûlée, and vanilla bean. Rich and creamy flavours of baked apples, poached pears, pineapple, lime, baking spices, and toasty oak with a balanced acidity and finish. 13.5% ABV.
The 2020 vintage had a moderate growing season throughout spring and summer. Cooler temperatures meant harvest started later than normal, around the first week of September. Harvest maintained a consistent, steady pace through early November, and the near-perfect temperatures and dry conditions allowed the grapes to fully ripen and mature slowly. The resulting wines show balanced flavours and excellent aromatics.
