2009 Rochioli "South River" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1078236 95 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Chardonnay South River is also fashioned from the Hanzell and old Wente clones. It exhibits more roasted hazelnut and tropical fruit characteristics intermixed with a hint of peaches and a stony component that adds to the wine’s minerality. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2011)

94 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Greenish yellow. Smoky, leesy pear and nectarine aromas are complicated by notes of iodine and jasmine and turn spicier with air. Stony, chewy orchard fruit flavors are firmed by dusty minerality, which adds back-end cut. This is about far more than fruit, in an Old World manner. The iodine element recurs on the gripping, very long finish. I love this style of Chardonnay. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2011)
