This crisp, Chablis-styled, medium-bodied 2010 I M Chardonnay reveals excellent texture, medium body and crisp acids along with notes of apple blossoms, caramelized citrus and brioche. Drink it over the next several years.
Wine Maker Notes
The Carneros AVA, the southernmost part of Sonoma, is invariably cool and windswept a good part of each day, thanks to strong breezes from San Pablo Bay. Carneros enjoys a long, moderate growing season that allows the grapes to mature slowly and evenly, giving balanced fruit that is rich in color, flavor and acidity.Light gold in color, our Chardonnay displays just a hint of oak so as not to overwhelm the fruit. The wine is medium-bodied and nicely balanced with the acidity and a toasty mid-palate in harmony with fresh fruit flavors of pear and apple.The Isabel Mondavi Chardonnay is an ideal complement to a variety of dishes thanks to its lively acidity, layered fruit and impeccable balance. Pair with white meats, baked fish, and cheeses made from cow or goat milk.
