Description

"...has a pretty nose of honeysuckle, candle smoke, lanolin, lemon pith and honeycomb with hints of lime peel, crushed stone and ripe stone fruits. The palate is medium to fullbodied, creamy and laden with perfumed fruits, with very juicy acidity and a touch of texture lingering into the finish. That's yummy!" ~ Wine Advocate 
 

The 2017 Roussanne is a food-friendly white wine that is rich, silky and maybe even a little exotic. Enjoy a bouquet of honeysuckle, beeswax, lemon, Mandarin orange, pie crust and vanilla. Crisp and refreshing on the palate, you will note flavors of citrus, honey, graham cracker, vanilla and orange zest with this Roussanne.

This wine is perfect for pairing with seafood, especially shellfish, but don’t be afraid to try with pâté, roasted chicken, cream sauces or spicy dishes.
