Founded by growers Gary and Rosella Franscioni, ROAR Wines is a small, family-run producer of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the elite vineyards of Santa Lucia Highlands. ROAR wines are made in collaboration with noted winemakers Ed Kurtzman and Adam Lee from fruit grown at the Franscioni’s own Rosella’s, Sierra Marr and Soberanes vineyards as well as the Gary’s and Pisoni Vineyards, which they co-own with the Pisoni family. Their goal with ROAR Wines is to make small lots of wine that are a pure reflection of the Santa Lucia Highlands and in particular the signature flavors of the vines. The name ROAR comes from the sound of the Monterey Bay winds that roar through their vineyards as well as the thrilling sound of a roaring crowd.
Roar Chardonnay went through 100% malolactic fermentation in barrel and was aged for 11 months. This expressive chardonnay marries delicate herbal notes with mouth-filling layers of tropical and stone fruits. Wheatgrass, straw, and picholine olive aromatics gain sweet melon and fruit pastille notes as the wine opens. The full-bodied palate is well-balanced with crisp acidity and viscous with sweet honeydew melon note balanced by a pineapple edge and subtle herbal aroma drawing out through the refreshing finish.
