This wine has opened and deepened remarkably in the 6 months or so since I first tried it, and scored 3 points higher in the most recent tasting than it did last October - a huge improvement, to my taste buds at least. It may still be on the upward trend, but it is already a super Chardonnay - I believe the best Estate bottling from Rochioli yet. Clean, pure, balanced feel from start to finish. Bright and refreshing texture, rich toasty flavors of butterscotch, peach, and nutmeg, long, palate-grabbing finish. - HK 2012-03-03
