2013 Robert Mondavi Winery Harvest of Joy To Kalon Vineyard Fumé Blanc Napa Valley
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Another record harvest, 2013 saw consistently beautiful weather leading to optimal ripeness in what is being called an 'epic' year. There was almost no rainfall from January through March, bringing an earlier than usual budbreak. April provided a few small rainstorms to quench the vines, and warm weather followed. With just one heat spike in late June and early July, the growing season provided weather for optimal flavor development in the grapes resulting in an early and healthy harvest. We harvested our select grapes for this wine between September 12th and October 14th.
