The I-Block of Robert Mondavi Winery’s To Kalon Vineyard provides 100 percent of the fruit for this treasured Fumé Blanc. Planted in 1945, I-Block is a famed vineyard site in Napa Valley’s Oakville AVA that is believed to be the oldest Sauvignon Blanc vineyard in North America – and the finest in the To Kalon Vineyard. The old vines are head-trained with no wires and are never irrigated. Through the years they have learned to self-regulate to produce just the amount of fruit that they can perfectly ripen. To Kalon soils are well-drained, allowing the roots to dig deep. Combined with dry farming, this results in intensely flavorful fruit with a fine mineral character, concentration and opulence.
