96 Points, Double Gold - 2020 Sunset International Wine Competition
A bouquet of lemongrass, sun-ripened Anjou Pear, almond butter and traces of Thai basil intrigue the senses. The palate is plush yet airy, highlighting silky elements of lemon meringue, golden apple and clove honey. The finish shines with rock melon and Key lime while subtle layers of dried jasmine flower and ground nutmeg endure.
Aiming to preserve the intense fruit and aromatics of the variety, this Roussanne was fermented and aged in 100% stainless steel. Hand-picked in the early morning, the cold grapes were pressed within moments after coming off the vine. Following juice settling, a long, cold fermentation commenced. Malolactic fermentation was inhibited to preserve acidity, keeping the wine fresh and crisp.
