Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2015 Roussanne is medium bodied with a supple mouth-feel and cleansing acidity on the finish. It is a brighter rendition than previous efforts displaying more citrus notes and brighter acidity. This wine has aromas of lemon tart, white flowers, and hazelnut, coupled with subtle notes of lime, vanilla and nutmeg.
Winemaker's Notes
The 2015 Roussanne comes from our 3 vineyards – our White Oak Flats site, Elenridge Vineyard, and Camino Ridge. We blended in a touch of Grenache Blanc into the final wine. The 2015 rendition was barrel fermented on its lees in 25% stainless steel, 54% a new French Hogshead barrel, and 20% in neutral French barriques. It spent less time in newer oak and more time in bottle compared to previous vintages.
