What the experts says
It is not often that we have a white of this caliber, with 40% savings and 95-points to boost? The Mondavi Reserve Fumé Blanc is not only from the singular white grown in the historic To Kalon Vineyard, but it also is one of the very few whites made in ‘Cult Cabland’ Oakville, period. Born in the olden and golden days of Robert Mondavi’s Napa Valley when he reinvented Sauvignon Blanc in the mid-1980s by barrel time in toasty new oak as “Fumé Blanc”, this everlasting classic is still made with his exact specifications and at an unsurpassed quality level thanks to the maturity of the pampered vines.

What the winery says
Flavor DescriptorsIn our special To Kalon vineyard site, Sauvignon Blanc expresses its purity of fruit, showcasing zesty tangerine with crisp Asian pear, while weaving in wafts of wild fennel and thyme and a mouthwatering minerality. Its piece de resistance, however, is the rich textural sensation that comes from vines spreading deep roots in a place in which it shares a special kinship: the To Kalon Vineyard.
