TASTING NOTES

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


VINEYARD NOTES

Harvested in the Mokelumne River AVA of the Lodi Appellation, our grape clones are Tablas Creek cuttings from the famous French Château de Beaucastel Winery in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region. Our climate is very similar to that of the Southern Rhône with cool nighttime breezes from the Mokelumne River nearby giving our grapes their ripe, fruity flavors with excellent balance.


WINEMAKER NOTES

All of our grapes are hand-picked and immediately pressed as whole clusters to capture their fresh, flavorful character. The grapes were harvested in the early morning to keep acidity at its highest, providing the vibrancy in the wine. The juice is then cool fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to highlight the pure fruit expressions

Review from Wine Writer Mike Dunne

“Acquiesce 2020 Lodi Roussanne: Lodi, long celebrated for its husky and brash red wines, nowadays is showing that it has the climate, soils and gutsy vintners to turn out white wines of alluring nuance and zest, including the Tiptons of Acquiesce, who with imagination and flair are raising Lodi’s profile for astute whites based on traditional Rhone Valley varieties, including this golden and elegant representative of Roussanne.”

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.
