In 2009, “Y by YOSHIKI” was born between renowned Japanese artist YOSHIKI and Napa Valley winemaker and 4th generation vintner, Rob Mondavi Jr. The grapes are sourced from premium vineyards across California and express the artistry, quality and creativity of this unique partnership. This California series is described by YOSHIKI as “smart casual” that is not only for wine lovers but also fits in with your everyday lifestyle.
Y by YOSHIKI California Chardonnay 2018 sold out immediately upon release, which led to another release of the same vintage and appropriately named “Encore”. Because of its popularity, Yoshiki has decided to continue the “Encore” Chardonnay brand for wine lovers to enjoy for many years to come.
The California sunshine was generous, warm and plentiful, ripening the Chardonnay to its’ full potential. The aromatics burst of fresh mango, Yubari King melon while the oak influence manifests with vanilla, hazelnuts and gentle toffee. The wine has full bodied texture that opens and evolves showing unique and woven layers of delicious tropical fruits.
