This expressive Sauvignon Blanc, Roussanne blend boasts a fresh nose of grapefruit, chermoya, pineapple, vanilla, and pear. It is flavorful and mouth-filling, with the Roussanne rounding out the angular edges of the Sauvignon Blanc profile to create a wine that's pleasingly bright and crisp, with sweet fruit flavors and enough body for pairing with a variety of foods.
In traditional winemaking we don't usually see Sauvignon Blanc and Roussanne blended together, but who cares? We were so confident we were on to something when we made this wine that we cofermented the two different grapes together after harvest, leaving us fully committed with no way to turn back. The result is delicious, pretty much the best of both grapes, just like we thought it would be. It's sweet enough if you like sweet wines, and has the acid we expect from Sauvignon Blanc, if you like that. It's fun to drink on its own, but it plays well with food. Could you even ask for more?
