2018 Rochioli-Allen Vineyards Chardonnay

Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
Enticing aromas of white flower petals, wet slate, white nectarine and honeysuckle set the stage for this beautiful and complex wine from the beloved Allen Vineyard. Deep, rich and intense, with elements of roasted Meyer lemon, lime zest and honey. Exceptional body, opulent and fresh with plenty of verve from the tangy acidity. Classic minerality and salinity give it ample persistence and tremendous purity.
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 were 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 15 and 76 from two blocks at the Allen Vineyard.
