Roussanne 2021

New Release
2021 Roussanne
Although our most difficult to grow, this wine has the most diverse characteristics of all of our varietals. The mouth is juicy yet restrained, with flavors of apricots and cream. The finish is mineral, with almond, pear, floral, and honey notes. It stands up to rich shellfish, salmon, spicy foods and garlic stir-fries. A must with foie gras!

TASTING NOTES

This wine is teeming with complexity. Aromas of green tea with a dollop of honey, cantaloupe, kiwi, and almond. A rich, seamless palate includes violet confit, custard, asian pear, and apricot. This is our biggest wine in the lineup.


VINEYARD NOTES

We have 2 acres planted to Roussanne, our resident princess varietal. Prone to rot, shatter, and uneven ripening, Roussanne keeps us busy during the growing season, to say the least. Our East to West row orientation utilizes the Delta breeze, providing crucial airflow that keeps rot at bay. We also employ a special leafing technique that opens up cluster architecture, enhancing the breeze effect, alongside its many other benefits.


WINEMAKER NOTES

Thankfully, Roussanne is more forgiving in the winery, making it the most rewarding in our eyes. Everything is hand-picked, hand-sorted, and whole cluster pressed. We harvest in the early morning to capture vital acidity that provides vibrancy to the wine. The juice is fermented cool in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve pure fruit expressions. Sur lie aging in tank until bottling aides texture formation.


Yukon Gold Potato Salad with Tarragon Pesto and Pickled Red Onions

The French herb tarragon is a natural pairing with our white wines. The clean, bright flavors of this potato salad are perfect for a summer day. Great pairing with our Roussanne. Recipe from Daniel Gritzer of Serious Eats.
