Rochioli Chardonnay Estate 2015
|Appellation||Russian River Valley|
Wine EnthusiastGolden-honey colored, this wine has toasty toffee oak and full-bodied richness, with a stark layering of citrus and baked apple. Concentrated and thick, it shows its youth and should benefit with time in both the glass and in the bottle.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay Estate comes from both Wente and Hanzel clones of Chardonnay. It displays loads of caramelized citrus and orange blossom, a rich, full-bodied mouthfeel, great minerality and freshness, and a floral personality. This wine sees about one-third to 40% new oak and is bottled unfiltered.
