A unique and slightly sweet blend of Roussanne and Riesling, perfect for rest and relaxation, raspberries and reblochon – or whatever R&R you can think of!
Our 2019 Riesling Roussanne Blend is a rich golden straw color. On the nose find petrol notes, bright floral aromas supported by rich of white peach, pear and wet slate. On the palate fiind flavors of fresh pineapple, lemon curd, mango and papaya. The mouthfeel is silky and round and the finish offers lingering flavors of candied lemon peel.
We used the German technique of Süssreserve (keeping some Riesling juice unfermented to blend with finished wine) to maintain sweetness in the wine and to bring in some more primary grape flavors. The combination of juice and fermentation flavors creates a unique bouquet, to say nothing of already unusual – but delightful – marriage of Riesling with Roussane.
