The Story:

The Rosella vineyard is on of the most sought after vineyard sources for great Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Nestled in the benchland of Monterey’s Santa Lucia Highlands, Rosella’s Vineyard was planted in 1996 by Gary Franscioni one of the appellation’s pioneering growers (from Garys’ fame – he also owns the Garys’ vineyard with Gary Pisoni),

Many great wineries such as Kosta Browne, Roar, Lucia, Carlisle, Siduri, and many others have been sourcing high-quality fruit from this vineyard.  So I was excited to hear that Saxon Brown started making wines from this much coveted vineyard as well!


The Wine:

Only 200 cases of the 2013 Saxon Brown Rosella’s Chardonnay were produced!  This wine has a very intense aroma of tropical fruits (guava, peach, mango) and a hint of creamy nuttiness jumping out of the glass.  The wine is lush and full in body with a round, creamy texture of pure Chardonnay fruit flavors of apple blossom and orange marmalade.  A touch of underlying minerality leads into a long finish where you’ll encounter a touch of toasty vanilla .
