2016 Roussanne

Restrained on the nose, this varietal wine brings muddled lemon with a slight char and salty cheese rind to mind. There's a substantial weight to the palate, as well as a bit more fruit, with bruised peach offering a bit of juiciness. Silken in feel, there's just enough acid to maintain balance.

Description

 Roussanne is a primary white grape in France’s Rhone Valley and usually blended with Marsanne. At McPherson we ferment and age in stainless steel to bring out the grapes natural “lemon drop” and herbaceous tea-like aromas and flavors. This dry, medium bodied wine is a great alternative to lightly or un-oaked Chardonnay.
