This wine has the characteristic youthful green-yellow straw color found in ROCO Chardonnays. Aromas of citrus blossom, pear fruit, brown turkey fig, and lovely spice leap out of the glass to greet you. This wine was built for aging with a bold mineral core wrapped by rich comice pear, a hint of citrus starfruit, and cashew nut, leading to a promise of white peach with a touch of Tahitian lime in the middle palate. The finish is opulent without going heavy. This is a seamless, cool climate Chardonnay.

Pale gold. Vibrant, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit scents are complemented by suggestions of fennel and toasted brioche. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering concentrated Anjou pear, tangerine and sweet butter flavors that pick up a dusty mineral flourish with air. Densely packed yet lithe in style, delivering solid closing cut and lingering honeysuckle and bitter pear skin notes. 20% new French oak.

This is a tart and tasty effort, matching pear and white peach fruit to brisk acidity. There is a touch of unsalted butter, suggesting at least partial malolactic fermentation, and it leads into a pleasantly creamy finish.

The 2016 Chardonnay Gravel Road opens with warm aromas of dried hay, ripe white peaches, apple tart, toast and spice. Medium-bodied, it has good concentration in the mouth with notions of apple and warm earth, finishing with refreshing juicy acidity. 977 cases produced.
