Estate Grown Roussanne

Estate Grown Roussanne Wine Details
Price: $22.99 per bottle

Description: Our 2008 Estate Grown Roussanne displays a honeyed richness often found in this elusive grape varietal. Your nose will say apricot, dried pear and peach while the every changing aromas flit in and out of this complex wine. A savory, lingering mid-palate leads to a truly rich feel in the mouth that will change moment to moment. It is these varietal characteristics that compelled us to produce such a profound wine; a wine whose complexities will only improve with bottle aging.

Varietal Definition
Also known as Bergeron in the french Savoie region. Semi-classic grape grown in the Hermitage-Rhone and southern Cotes du Rhone region of France. Still occasionally incorporated into white wine blends, (e.g: with the Marsanne grape wine), because of its acidity and aroma but finding less and less favor.
