    Winemaker's Notes:

    This Sauvignon Blanc possesses the typical Rochioli character and the classic Russian River Valley charm. Fifty-eight percent is from their sixteen-year-old hillside vineyard and twenty-eight percent is from their newest planting of a very special and rare clone. Only twenty percent of this blend is barrel fermented which gives this wine its complexity and round texture. The rest is tank fermented to preserve its intense varietal character and firm acidity

    Color: Pale, creamy yellow.

    Aroma: Aromas of grapefruit with a touch of grass and flinty characteristics.

    Taste:An intense, complex and richly flavored wine.

    "Green-gold. Racy, sharply focused aromas of lime, orange zest and talc, with a zesty, peppery accent. Medium-bodied and chewy, with concentrated orange and Meyer lemon flavors and a lush, round quality on the lengthy finish. These vines were planted in 1959, according to Rochioli, "and that's why it always has real body and texture in addition to the usual freshness I like in sauvignon blanc."
