Raw and a bitrustic now, with a tight, concentrated core of pear, fig, apple and smoky, toasty oak. This is most alluring on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 1,964 cases made.-JL
Pale gold. Deeply pitched aromas of poached pear, almond and honey are brightened by a suggestion of minerally oyster shell. Round and velvety but at the same time showing vibrancy to its ripe orchard fruit and melon flavors. A late jolt of lemon pith adds bite to a supple, clinging finish. More hefty than usual for this bottling, which Tom Rochioli attributes entirely to the vintage.
The 2012 Chardonnay Estate, which comes from an assortment of different sites, exhibits lots of orange marmalade, caramelized citrus, honeysuckle and background wet gravelly minerality. Medium-bodied and loaded with fruit, it should drink nicely for 5-6 years.
