If you’re up for something different, Roussanne is your bag. Rarely bottled as a single variety, this French variety is similar in style to a dry Sauvignon or Chenin Blanc, offering expressive ripened fruit on the nose.

Description

The grapes were hand-picked early morning at 24.4 brix and delivered to the cellar, where they were destalked and gently pressed. The free run juice was cold fermented in stainless steel tanks. 40% of the juice was allowed to ferment in 2nd fill French oak barrels. On completion of fermentation, the wine was allowed to mature on the lees for 10 months prior to blending and bottling.
