Rochioli Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Rich and creamy, this is a standout wine from the great vineyard owner and producer. It shines in a wealth of golden honey and salty oak, a well-balanced sensibility streaked through in a memorable, ying-yang of lushness and crisp Gravenstein apple.
Tom Rochioli's 2016 Chardonnay Estate is a classy, understated appellation-level wine from various blocks on the estate. Racy and beautifully textured, the 2015 is super-finessed from start to finish. Lemon confit, apricot, mint and chamomile add shades of nuance, but it is the wine's exceptional balance that stands out most. This is a gorgeous Chardonnay from Tom Rochioli.
The 2016 Chardonnay Estate offers up lovely white peaches, honeydew melon and lemon curd scents with hints of honeyed toast and allspice. Medium to full-bodied with great freshness cutting through the intense stone fruit and citrus flavors, it has a nice long, savory finish.
The 2016 Chardonnay is another classy wine from this estate. Buttered citrus, hints of pineapple, brioche, and buttered toast all emerge from this medium-bodied, sweetly fruited Chardonnay. It has plenty of fruit, a nicely balanced profile and a good finish. This cuvee spent 9 months in 35% new French oak.
Pithy citrus, green apple and melon flavors give this a fresh vibrancy and lingering aftertaste. Drink now. 1,200 cases made.
