2017 Roussanne – Wine Scores 91 Points

The 2017 Roussanne was made from specially selected small lot grapes from Lawrence vineyard in Royal City (the new Frenchman Hills AVA) and Dineen Vineyards in the Yakima valley.

The Roussanne drinks beautifully now, especially when it has a chance to breathe, open up and display the range of tastes and aromas hidden within. A medium body, refreshing round wine with notes of citrus fruit and lychee. Firm acidity, and nice finish.

Description

The 2017 Roussanne was made from specially selected small lot grapes from Lawrence vineyard in Royal City (the new Frenchman Hills AVA) and Dineen Vineyards in the Yakima valley. It is made from 100% Roussanne grapes. The grapes were hand-picked and pressed whole cluster into 4 year old French oak barrels and fermented slowly in the barrels. The wine was aged on the lees in the barrels for 5 months, with stirring of the lees (Bâtonnage) performed once a week in order to extract and integrate all the flavors in the wine, then racked off the lees.

Tasting Notes: The Roussanne was bottled in May 2018 and continues to mature in the bottle. It drinks beautifully now, especially when it has a chance to breathe, open up and display the range of tastes and aromas hidden within. A medium body, refreshing round wine with notes of citrus fruit and lychee. Firm acidity, and nice finish. This Roussanne will continue to mature for the next five years.
