Robert Mondavi 2015 Fume Blanc, 50th Anniversary, Napa Valley
The original Napa Valley Fume Blanc, Robert Mondavi coined the term back in the 60's and created a new category of white wine. 100% Sauvignon Blanc just like the French namesake Pouilly Fume, and 68% is barrel fermented in French oak and aged on the lies for four months. This adds richness and complexity that's hard to come by in most California Sauvignon Blanc. This is their 50th Anniversary vintage. For this wine grape were sourced from 70% Wappo Hill Vineyard, 13% To Kalon Vineyard, 6% Napa Carneros, all Napa Valley grapes hand-harvested in the cool of the morning and gently pressed as whole clusters. 85% percent of the juice was barrel fermented for added richness and complexity. The balance underwent a cool fermentation in stainless steel to heighten the vibrant fruity and herbal flavors. The new wine was aged for five months in 60-gallon French oak barrels, sr lie (on the yeast lees), and hand stirred twice a month for a creamy texture and seamless integration of flavors. The addition of a small percentage of Semillon gives the final blend a broader mouth feel and enhanced complexity. Wine Review Online scored this 95 points saying "The Mondavi fum style was the inspiration of the late Robert Mondavi and remains true to his vision today. It has a definite touch of oak, just enough to provide an inviting backdrop for the complex aromas of the Sauvignon Blanc grape (with a touch of Semillon). This vintage exhibits aromas of citrus and tropical fruits, with a grassy back note and a stony mineral quality."

Memories from Mondavi
As I remembered it 50 yrs ago. Clean, light, but one dimensional. I prefer Sauv.Blanc with more flowery notes, more mineral notes. Still, this is a good easy wine to like. Fair value.
