A rare single varietal interpretation of this aromatic Rhône white variety, this limited production wine was sourced from a respected neighboring grower whose vineyards sit on steep terraces of chalk rock, the indigenous calcareous shale. Roussanne, a reddish-gold colored grape native to both the Southern and Northern Rhône Valley in France has a rich and unctuous mouth feel with penetrating scents of wild flower honey and peach blossom.

Barrel fermented in neutral oak barrels the wine rested on its lees for 11 months, which added a creamy baked croissant character to the beeswaxy richness and ripe fruitiness of the finished wine.
