The Rochioli Riverblock is situated on the bank of the Russian River Valley where the soil is deep and loamy with river gravel scattered throughout - ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noirs. The depth of the soil allows for the plants to ripen slowly and develop incredible flavour. Always intriguing on the nose, the 2016 Williams Selyem Rochioli Riverblock Pinot Noir has dark red and black fruit aromas mixed with dried herbs and hints of fennel. Soil-rich tones add a bass note to the incredibly complex nose while deeply pitched fruit flavours in the mouth are layered with extremely refined tannin. The seamless acidity allows the tannin to shine and offers an unctuous texture without heaviness. This is a stellar Pinot.
