2021 Roussanne

2021 Roussanne

Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County
Originally grown in the Rhone wine region of France, Roussanne is a primary component in the white wines of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.   Roussanne drinks very well as a young wine but will develop more complexity and depth if aged 7-8 years.
TASTING NOTES:  A spirited wine, with lush fruit notes of white peach and apricot bolstered by honeycomb and orange blossom. The palate is medium, with prominent structure and youthful acidity. The finish is laced with subtle spice and delicious flavors of lemon meringue and vanilla custard, ending in a mineral-driven, lengthy finale.
FOOD PAIRING:  Due to the natural acidity and heavier body, this wine is excellent with rich shellfish or poultry dishes. Try this wine with fresh vegetables, especially artichokes. A match for anything you might pair with chardonnay, our 2020 Roussanne can also stand up to spicy fare.
