Winemaker's Notes:

This estate wine has ripe tropical aromas with a hint of grapefruit and a slight grassiness that a fine Sancerre would possess. Eighty percent is from The original vines planted in 1959 and the balance is from the estate hillside vineyard that is sixteen years old.
My Notes:

About Rochiolli:

The Rochioli family has been growing grapes on its 136-acre ranch since the 1930s. In 1984, Tom Rochioli created the first wines to be produced under the Rochioli name. The 9000 case winery produces Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.
