This is our first release of a white wine and we thought we'd try something a little different. With 24 hours of skin contact before fermentation, this is not your typical Roussanne. The additional time we allowed the juice to stay in contact with the skins gave this wine a golden color and softened its mouthfeel considerably. It's expression is round and floral rather than tart and fruity. We like to think of it as a red-wine drinker's white but white-wine drinkers will find plenty to like in this release. The fruit came from our friend Henry Coufos in Rough and Ready and it was spontaneously fermented and allowed to complete malolactic fermentation in neutral barrels. Only 20 cases bottled, get yours fast!
