92 Points, Gold - 2020 Sunset International Wine Competition
Wisps of crushed chamomile and honeycomb give way to aromas of fresh apricot and Fuji apple on the nose. The lush, yet refreshing, palate brings textured memories of waxy white peach, lemon butter, spiced citrus and quince zest. Essence of ripe cantaloupe, jasmine oil and ginger tea take lead to the finish.
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.
