Destiny Ridge Vineyard Block 18 is the perfect home for our small planting of Roussanne. Our Rhone white is known for the rusty color it turns when it is perfectly ripe. This site-specific planting develops luxurious aromatics combined with a weightier mouthfeel on the pallet and bright acidity on the finish. Light straw in color and brimming with aromatics of sweet peach and apricot, lemon custard, and tropical lychee fruit, this beautiful
Roussanne is both balanced and luscious, with an intense lemony frame. While enjoying this wine, we have found that when it is served very cold, the focus is on minerality but as it warms in the glass, lovely notes of sweet honey and white flowers bring this wine to life. We love pairing this with a second glass of Roussanne and seared scallops with Beurre Blanc or lemony chicken piccata. Or simply stay true to Roussanne’s roots with creamy goat cheese brie and crackers. Cheers!
