This is handpicked fruit from our Estate Vineyard Destiny Ridge. The 2016 growing season was met with many challenges due to rains late in the season, while this can be an issue with some whites given our warm site we were able to ripen and bi-pass any issues that other AVA’s may have had. The 2016 Roussanne is bursting with aromatics of citrus and stone fruit to this this already perfumed bouquet of fresh cut flowers and a touch of honey. Our vineyard staffs meticulous work in the vineyard allowing the winemaking team to work with the fruit during fermentation and bring out tropical flavors of peach, green apple and layers of honeysuckle that flow through the palate. Flavor profile is kept in focus due to the balanced amount of acidity on finish. Roussanne is great for some intriguing food matches, so try pairing with semi soft cheeses like fresh blue cheese and triple cream, steamed Manila clams or try something fun like a seafood pasta.
