Tasting Notes
This beautiful Rochioli Sauvignon Blanc offers pure varietal expression, with aromas of peach blossom, gooseberry, passion fruit, dried ginger and lemon zest. This vibrant, aromatic beauty has a medium-bodied palate that is layered with exotic notes of guava, lemongrass, tangerine and melon, and a mouthwatering, fleshy texture that is framed by bright, zippy acidity. The long, expressive finish is lively and seamless.
Vineyard Notes
About five miles from our winery up the gently winding Westside Road, the 162-acre Rochioli Vineyard was originally purchased in 1938 by Joe Rochioli, Sr. The vision of growing highest quality wine grapes along these fertile, gravelly soils was carried out by Joe Jr. after his father’s passing in 1966. We began working with Sauvignon Blanc from the famed Rochioli Vineyard in 2019. This iconic family-owned winery has produced amazing quality old vine Sauvignon Blanc for many years so we are honored to continue working with the fruit. This particular section of the vineyard was planted in 2001 to the rare ENTAV clone 376, known to produce moderate yields with tremendous varietal character, aromatic intensity, body and excellent acidity. This clone was selected by Joe Rochioli, Jr. as a beautiful counterpoint to the original old vines on the estate that were planted 1959
