The 2015 Estate Chardonnay was an infant when we tasted it - barely in bottle - yet it already showed its class. Far better than the 2013 tasted recently, the 2015 has a crisp, mineral-laden mouthfeel with rich stone fruit flavors and a touch of nutmeg spice. Still slightly acidic, but this will unquestionably soften over the coming year or two. This is remarkably enjoyable even barely bottled, and it has no place to go but up from here. Another in an infinite string of Rochioli wines that are highlighted by their rich flavors and pure feel. - HK 2016-09-05
