2018 Mondavi Private Selection Bourbon Barrel Chardonnay 750ml
This Chardonnay is the first and only Chardonnay that blends the craftsmanship of California wine-making with the Southern tradition of Bourbon Whiskey aging, resulting in an incredibly bold sensory expression. Rich, golden in color, it opens with intense aromas of ripe pineapple and toasted coconut with hints of toasted marshmallow and vanilla bean custard. Flavors of grilled pineapple, lemon custard, graham cracker, toffee, and vanilla bean follow with baking spices and toasty oak. Rich, creamy, and concentrated with balanced acidity and a lingering finish. This wine is perfect on its own or with grilled halibut and lemon-caper butter, roasted pork tenderloin, garden salad with Gorgonzola and toasted pecans, shrimp scampi, and bacon-wrapped dates.
