Roussanne is a white grape from the Rhone region of France and our favorite Rhone white wine. Our 2017 Roussanne is from the Kuenster Miers Vineyard, and Sonoma Valley is a perfect place to grow it. The wine has the crispness of Sauvignon Blanc and tropical fruit flavors, particularly mangos. We enhance these characteristics by very gently cold pressing the juice from the grapes and fermenting it on selected yeast at a cold temperature. It pairs beautifully with light luncheon fare, and is wonderful with Filet de Sole with cappers and butter. It is made dry.
