With rich characteristics of nectarine and pear, this Roussanne is an excellent complement to pan-seared scallops in cream based sauces, roasted root vegetables and nutty cheeses like Gruyère and Fontina.
These Roussanne grapes were grown at the Saracina Vineyard in Mendocino County. A small amount of Viognier was added to highlight the floral notes of this wine.
Fermentation: The grapes were picked in the cool morning and whole-cluster pressed. After chilling and settling the juice, the clear juice was racked into stainless steel tank and fermented at a cool temperature to retain fresh fruit flavors. No malo-lactic fermentation.
Cooperage / Aging: The wine was aged for 14 months in stainless steel tank.
