Rochioli J Sauvignon Blanc 2011
Light, bright yellow. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes lemon curd, honeysuckle, anise and white pepper, with deeper pear and beeswax nuances. Intense citrus fruit and bitter pear skin flavors, picking up sweetness and flesh with air. Refuses to let up on the finish, which leaves notes of succulent herbs and honey behind. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Nice, crisp and bright Sauv-Blanc that is good example of its region and producer. Low 90's score . . . maybe 91-92.
Light, bright and delicious.
Pleasant aromatics and a nicely moderate nose. Tropical fruits, grapefruit and flinty character. Clean and refreshing and doesn't lean to far in any one direction. Nice. - Tasted at winery 4/21/10
Excellent. Full bodied Sauvignon Blanc. Apples and citrus smells. Will definitely be ordering some of this online when we start running low.
Grape fruit, sharp acidity and tartness. Some lemon too.
External Reviews for Rochioli J Sauvignon Blanc
Green-tinged straw. Exotic aromas of green apple, agave and white flowers, with a citrus zest nuance adding lift. Dry, focused and firm on the palate, offering zesty orchard and citrus fruit flavors underscored by dusty minerality. Shows little in the way of herbal character and finishes tangy, tight and very long.
A lovely whiff of pungent white flowers mingles with melon, stone fruit and pea blossom notes. Very precise and refreshing, with a persistent, juicy finish. Drink now. 1,380 cases made.
Pale yellow. High-pitched aromas of lemon zest, green apple, jasmine and iodine, with a hint of white pepper coming up with air. Dry and precise sauvignon, offering solid punch to its intense citrus and floral flavors. Powerful but weightless wine wi... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

A pale, creamy yellow. Hints of tropical fruit and grapefruit on the nose. An intense, complex and richly flavored wine with an incredibly lingering finish.

91 points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar"Light, greenish gold. Mineral-accented orange, lemon and floral aromas are complicated by nuances of green tea and honeysuckle. Impressively racy and focused but far from austere, with juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a dusting of talc-y minerality. Tactile, well-delineated wine, leaving spicy and stony notes behind on the long finish."-Josh Raynolds, May/June 2010
