Rochioli Chardonnay Estate 2015
|Appellation||Russian River Valley|
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.
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.
