Tasting:

    Chilled before drinking. Clear, very light oat straw color. Very aromatic honeysuckle, citrus blossoms and pear aromas. Smooth, dusty and refreshing mouthfeel, light to medium body and a 200-grit texture. Fresh Honey, lemon, juicy ripe pears and very delicious mineral flavors. Plenty of crisp acidity with a long lively and exhilarating finish. WOW, crisp and refreshing, but not nearly as sweet as traditional Roussanne from southern France. We really liked the dry, flavorful blend. Wonderful paired with both the quiche and salad and it was a perfect Fall sipping wine. We called it a subtle, savory white wine from the south of France that’s a super GREAT VALUE.
