Roussanne derives its name from its russeted skin. And as such,
it is not surprising that its flavors are autumnal to the max,
evocative of harvest’s rich pomelous bounty, viz. Asian
pears and quince.
The wine is bright yellow in color, with a faint cast of
chartreuse, and when swirled it offers a perfume of orange blossom,
nectarine, honeysuckle and zesty citrus. Best served lightly
chilled, it is medium bodied with nice acidity. Underlying the
classic characteristics of pome fruits is an undeniable citrus
quality, perhaps of tangerine and yuzu, balanced by a lovely creamy
texture and long finish.
Our roussanne is the perfect complement to rich and savory fare,
for foods generally deemed best consumed in considered moderation.
But one should be anything but moderate in support of beauty,
harmony, felicity and vision*!
