Rochioli Sauvignon Blanc 2016


SKU 31916


Fifty nine percent is from the original Sauvignon Blanc vineyard planted in 1959, twenty five percent is from our newest planting (2001) of a very special and rare clone, and sixteen percent is from our 31-year-old hillside vineyard. This wine is tank fermented at a cool temperature to preserve its intense varietal character and firm acidity. With aromas of passion fruit, melon, and citrus tones this is a light and sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc. Food Pairing: Ideally paired with fresh goat cheese, creamy Brie, grilled scallops, freshly shucked oysters, filet of sole, lemon-herb chicken, caprese salad.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a beautifully exotic and delicate wine with steely minerality and subdued power. Full of lemony flavor, it complementarily exudes fresh tangerine and grapefruit peel, enwrapping its nuanced fruit with floral highlights.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Sauvignon Blanc has a pure, zippy nose of fresh lemons and limes with nuances of chopped herbs and crushed stones. The medium-bodied palate offers a good amount of uncomplicated citrus and vegetal flavors, lifted by crisp acidity and finishing long.

Wine SpectatorThe modest pear and citrus flavors are delicate and crisp. Tired notes of hay and dried chamomile show on the finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 2,744 cases made.
