2015 Rochioli-Allen Vineyards, Clone 76 Concrete Chardonnay

Appellation
Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
This special, very limited production Chardonnay emanates vibrant aromas of lemon zest, honeysuckle and white flower petals. The concrete aging polishes and accentuates the clean, crisp flavors of Meyer Lemon, Green Anjou pear and quince, while adding subtle hints of gun flint and wet slate. Focused and full of flavor upon entry, the concrete imparts a decidedly mineral, savory, and almost saline quality, while the neutral oak barrels add another layer of rich, creamy, palate-coating texture. The mouthfeel is precisely balanced with bright, natural acidity that leads to an exceptionally long, mouthwatering finish.
Vineyard Notes
The grapes for this outstanding Chardonnay come from Allen Vineyard, located adjacent to the renowned Rochioli Vineyard and farmed by the Rochioli family. The clones and field selections we work with from these vineyards are chosen to take advantage of the specific soil type, elevation and exposure to the sun, generating wines that are vibrant and powerful yet delicate and balanced. The Allen Vineyard in particular is known for producing small to moderately-sized clusters and berries, and for yielding classic, aromatic, well-balanced Chardonnays.
