2023 Roussanne, Wyldvin Vineyard

2023 Roussanne, Wyldvin Vineyard

Dry Creek Valley
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 fresh baked challah bread or croissant, honeycomb, white peach and notes of mango. The palate is medium, with prominent structure and youthful acidity. The finish is laced with subtle spice and delicious flavors of lemon meringue, vanilla, and acacia flower 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 or grilled artichokes. A match for anything you might pair with Chardonnay, our 2022 Roussanne can also stand up to spicy fare.
