Description

At first glance you will notice the beautiful golden straw color of our 2015 Roussanne.  The glass captures aromas of honeysuckle, beeswax, honey, vanilla and starfruit while lemon, Mandarin orange and pie crust scents remind you of a warm summer day. The honey and citrus theme continues on the palate, followed by graham cracker, vanilla and orange zest. Roussanne begs to be paired with a soft cheeses, roast chicken and especially shellfish.
