RAMEY WINE CELLARS Chardonnay, Rochioli Vineyard 2017

The 2017 Rochioli Vineyard Chardonnay is an exceptional release from Ramey in this vintage. Composed from a clonal blend which consists of 74% from Mid-40 block (Clones 4 & 76), 19% River block (Clone 5) and 7% Allen Vineyard (Clone 76). The result is a fabulous Chardonnay that is layered and focused, offering inviting aromas of lemon oil, Asian Pear, white florals and a lovely underlying mineral character of crushed stones all taking shape in the glass. On the palate this possesses a beautiful round texture, with a deep core of delicious fruit, which is balanced by a perfect touch of acidity to add a sense of freshness through the finish. This is a sensational showing from David Ramey that certainly impresses today, however it should also go on to drink beautifully with some additional bottle age.
