2016 Roussanne

Not very well known outside of the Rhone Valley in France, Roussanne is variety that is seemingly defined by a history of obscurity. Roussanne is typically relegated to Rhone-style blends in order to give that extra dimension, or "boost" of flavor.


Description

Not very well known outside of the Rhone Valley in France, Roussanne is variety that is seemingly defined by a history of obscurity. Roussanne is typically relegated to Rhone-style blends in order to give that extra dimension, or "boost" of flavor. Celebrated for its unique candy lemon drop flavors and delicate, herbaceous, tea-like aromas, it is without a doubt a wine that deserves more attention. McPherson Cellars would like to introduce you a wine of distinction, a wine that truly should be in the limelight. Enjoy this wine with seafood, poultry, light salads, or on its own.
