Description

"...Slightly more exotic notes of sappy herbs, honeyed quince, pineapple, and flowers emerge from the glass. Beautifully balanced and medium-bodied, with good acidity and a clean finish, it's going to shine on the dinner table." ~ Jeb Dunnuck 

"...creamy and generous in the glass. Apricot, mint, orange peel and tangerine oil flesh out in this super-expressive white. The 2018 is absolutely gorgeous and also a terriffc example of the vintage." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

The 2018 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.
