2016 Rochioli-Allen Vineyards Chardonnay

Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
Delicate aromas of jasmine and honeysuckle introduce this beautiful offering from the historic Rochioli Allen vineyard. Oily lemon zest, tangerine, and green apple work in concert with underlying hints of butterscotch and crème brulee. The entry is exceptionally bright, refreshing, and perfectly complimented with flavors of white peaches and Bosc pear. Pronounced minerality, coupled with the crisp citrus profile provide a long, mouthwatering finish.
Vineyard Notes
The grapes for this outstanding Chardonnay come from two different blocks within the Allen Vineyard, planted just to the south of the Rochioli Vineyard. The diverse soil types and unique microclimates of this site provides ideal conditions for Chardonnay. Each clone and field selection was chosen to take advantage of specific soil type, elevation and exposure to the sun, generating wines that are vibrant and powerful, yet delicate and balanced. Some of the oldest vines have been nurtured by three generations of the Rochioli family. This blend is composed of clones 76 and 15 from two blocks at the Allen Vineyard.
