2014 Rochioli-Allen Vineyards Chardonnay

Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
The three clones from Rochioli and Allen vineyards make this a rich and powerful wine that is strikingly different from the single Rochioli Vineyard Chardonnay. This wine exudes similar citrus zestiness and the mineral-laden backbone of its counterpart, wrapped in a divinely more sumptuous package reminiscent of warm baked goods. Abundant aromas of butterscotch and vanilla are balanced by fresh lemon zest and key lime. Intriguing flavors of candied pear, quince paste, almond and lemon curd fold seamlessly into a creamy and textured palate, offering a seductive richness that is characteristic of this historic site.
Vineyard Notes
The grapes for this outstanding Chardonnay come from two adjacent vineyards in the heart of the Russian River Valley: the renowned Rochioli Vineyard and Allen Vineyard planted just to the south, which is farmed by the Rochioli family. This blend is composed predominantly of clones 76 and 15 from three blocks at the Allen Vineyard, and the balance is clone 5 from the Rochioli River Block.
