Roussanne/Marsanne 2015

  • Blend:  Flagship White Wine - Rhone inspired
    70% Roussanne, 30% Marsanne

    Aroma:  mirroring old world wines with reductive-leesy character then opens up to burnt sugar, crème brûlée and stone fruit

    Palate:  layers of creamy texture with stone fruit and citrus, hints of minerality and butterscotch

    About:  fuller-bodied, savory, long finish, oaked

    From an unprecedented warm vintage, each variety was hand-picked and hand sorted.  The fruit was inoculated in stainless steel and a 40% transferred to barrel (2nd and 3rd fill) French oak barrique and puncheon.  The oak component was allowed to complete full malolactic fermentation naturally. Both the oaked and stainless fractions were lees stirred weekly.

    Food Pairing Suggestions: Spaghetti Carbonara | white fish in lemon butter sauce | Bouillabaisse | pâté
