Robert Mondavi Private Selection Chardonnay

Robert Mondavi Private Selection Chardonnay

The “Chosen White” for our 4th of July celebration will be Robert Mondavi Private Selection Chardonnay vintage year 2006.  Crafted from grapes grown in California’s cooler climate of the central coast, this wine reveals delightful fragrances of citrus, apple and melon.  Properly chilled between 60 – 68 degrees, I found this white to be very light, somewhat dry, crisp and refreshing on  the palate right to the finish.  Earlier vintage years of this same wine exuded more buttery and full bodied elements.  While they too were quite excellent, I was looking more for a white that would quench ones thirst like a ice cold beer on a hot day.  For my taste, Robert Mondavi Private Selection Chardonnay fit the bill.  Reasonably priced at $8 per bottle, this fine wine is widely available at most well stocked retail establishments.

Drink responsibly and Happy Birthday America!!!!

Menage a Trois 2006 White Wine Review

Sir Vino is constantly in pursuit of wines that rate high in QVR (quality to value ratio).  Today, I am enjoying a suprisingly elegant White Table Wine under the label of “Menage a Trois”.    This California vinted wine is a delightful blend of Chardonnay, Moscato and Chenin blanc.  Vintage 2006, this respectable white can be found at many retail establishments for under $15.00.  Enoy!!!!
