RAMEY WINE CELLARS Chardonnay, Rochioli Vineyard 2018

The Rochioli family has growing fruit on their property since the late 1950s and the Vineyard is recognized as one of the premier sites in the Russian River Valley for high quality Chardonnay. The 2018 Rochioli Chardonnay from Ramey is a clear example of the quality the vineyard has to offer, as it is an absolutely stunning wine. It begins with a complex aromatic profile of crisp Asian pears, white peaches and Meyer lemons which are laced with nuances of apple tart, honeycomb and orange blossoms and a lovely mineral note. On the palate this possesses a beautiful textural richness with outstanding overall balance and focus. It offers a rich, yet vibrant core that is laced with delicious ripe fruit flavors which are underlined by a lovely combination of acidity and minerality keeping it fresh and inviting through the finish. This is a brilliant Chardonnay from Ramey in this vintage that is simply thrilling in its youth, but should certainly go on to evolve over the course of the next decade.
