Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91

($60) Light, bright gold. Slightly leesy aromas of poached pear, buttered toast and spices. Rich, ripe and supple, with a chewy quality to the orchard fruit, orange and mineral flavors. A building spicy element gives complexity to the finish and adds a vibrant touch to the deep fruit flavors. Give this some air.

The Sweetwater Vineyard is one of Rochioli's newest sites, and the 2008 Chardonnay Sweetwater Vineyard (also from an old Wente clone) exhibits lots of minerality in addition to more white peach, quince, creme brulee, and mango characteristics as well as an overriding sense of crushed rocks/wet stones. It has a full-bodied, powerful personality reminiscent of a white Burgundy, only riper. This cuvee should drink well for 5-6 years.

About This Producer


With three generations of dedication to the land, Rochioli Vineyards and Winery has earned the reputation as one of Sonoma County's finest. This family legacy began in 1938, when Joe Rochioli Sr. purchased land he had long farmed. He had the foresight to know that the soil of the Russian River Valley would one day produce some of the world's greatest wines. His son Joe Jr. embraced this vision and today craft renowned, terrior-driven wines built on a foundation of superb fruit.

The result has been a decades-long tradition of outstanding vintages: Silky-smooth, fruit-forward Pinot Noirs; rich, opulent Chardonnays; and tangy, food-friendly Sauvignon Blancs.
