2016 marks our second vintage of Roussanne as a stand-alone varietal at Cave B and it continues to impress me with its lovely varietal character and graceful, yet powerful presence. The nose is filled with aromas of fresh nectarines and hints of apricots laced with a beautiful floral character. The palate shows the true depth of the wine with a wonderful lush viscosity that elevates the fruit flavors and allows them to persist on the palate long after you’ve swallowed the wine. Stone fruits and flavors of Star fruit (also known as Carambola) are delightful on the palate. The perfect balance of acidity gives the wine a bright, almost crisp finish.
I think this wine would be amazing with a crisp Fritto Misto di Mare (mixed fried seafood) with lemon aioli.
