Our 2015 UV Vineyard Chardonnay is a beautifully refined expression of cool-climate Sonoma Coast Chardonnay, characterized by vibrant acidity, bright fruit, stony minerality, and Rocca’s signature elegance and balance. There’s wonderful verve and purity to the fruit here, built on a lively core of barely ripe pineapple and accentuated with notes of lemon zest and citrus blossoms. On the palate, the wine shows a fascinating, dynamic tension between its substantial textural presence and its vivacious natural acidity and crisp minerality. The finish here is deliciously precise and focused and remarkably long, with interwoven elements of zingy pineapple, lemon, lightly toasted bread, wet stones, and the subtlest charismatic flourish of oak spice. Very limited production wine. Fruit is from the UV Vineyard, Hyde Wente Clone on 101-104 rootstock.
