Rochioli Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

A pale, creamy yellow color. Aromas of grapefruit with a touch of grass and flinty characteristics. An intense, complex and richly flavored wine.

With three generations of dedication to the land, Rochioli Vineyards and Winery has earned the reputation as one of Sonoma County's finest wineries. 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. Always in demand, always revered and always rated among the best varietals to be sought anywhere in the world. This commitment to quality is unwavering and our promise to everyone who uncorks a bottle of our wine. Read less

Excellent. Full bodied Sauvignon Blanc. Apples and citrus smells. Will definitely be ordering some of this online when we start running low.

`Light bright yellow. Strikingly fresh citrus and green apple aromas display impressive purity and a strong mineral quality. Lively lime and lemongrass flavors deliver solid punch but carry no fat. Exotic floral and pungent herbal notes build on the long incisive finish which strongly echoes the lemongrass quality. This was bottled at the end of January said Rochioli `because four months is really all it needs and I want the fruit to be as fresh as possible.` Most of these vines were planted in 1959.` Rated 91 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar.
