Roussanne Wine Details
Price: $26.00 per bottle

Description: Delightfully spicy aromatics and creamy texture are the hallmarks of this sparsely planted grape, originating in the Rhone Valley of France. Hand harvested in the brisk morning air, the fresh pressed juice was cold fermented to retain its dynamic fruit and aroma characteristics, and to deliver a long, vibrant finish. Rich in body and flavor, this wine is the perfect aperitif, but can work equally well with bold picnic fare.

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.
