2021 Columbia Valley Roussanne

We make Roussanne because we like it, it is enjoyable with Asian cuisine, and there is already enough Chardonnay in the world! We made our first Roussanne in 2002 - back then it was very unusual. Over the years we have experimented with different vineyards and styles of winemaking.

Tasting notes

Crystal clear with a yellow hue with a green tinge. The Roussanne has aromas of white flowers, white peaches, green apple, green mango skin, wet river rock, and cardamom. The mouth-feel texture is mineral driven and fresh with weighty mid-palate richness. This Roussanne is more on the lean side of most Roussanne wines. The fruit is green apple and bosc pear. Balance is on point and overall this is a delicious white wine.

Production notes

Carousel Vineyard is located in the cooler, high elevation region of the Yakima Valley. The Roussanne vines were planted on a southern slope with an East-West row orientation.  This orientation allows the vines to provide leaf shade for the clusters to prevent sunburn and retain acidity. The grapes were hand-harvested and gently press whole cluster on September 21st. The wine was fermented in used French Oak barrels with yeast that enhance the mineral and green fruit flavors of the Roussanne grapes. The wine rested on the lees for six months prior to filtration and bottling in April 2022.
