    Rochioli Chardonnay 2007
    Sweetwater Vineyard
    Bottle (9)
    "From Rochioli's newest parcel, the 2007 Chardonnay Sweetwater Vineyard (Wente clone) displays the highest acid of all these Chardonnays, in a year which seems to have produced relatively zesty acids for Chardonnay. Super-duper aromas of white peach, subtle hazelnut, orange blossom, and crushed rock are all present in this backward, full-bodied wine. With superb minerality, in a style offering plenty of concentration as well as surprising restraint, this wine is behaving more like a young grand cru white Burgundy than a typical California Chardonnay in its reserved, close-to-the vest style. Nevertheless, it cuts a broad, deep palate impression and reveals enormous promise." (92+pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #187, Feb 2010)
