Bonterra Vineyards Roussanne Organic 2008

External Review:

The Mediterranean climate we enjoy on the North Coast, combined with carefulselection of the right rootstocks (101-14, 5C, S04 for the Roussanne) and thearomatic Roussanne Clone 1 that does well in the loamy soils of the region brings usfruit to showcase an exceptional Rhone blend. The vines are relatively young, rangingfrom seven to 12 years. We fermented this vintage entirely in stainless, withoutmalolactic fermentation while leaving the wine in neutral oak for eight months torest and gain a touch of complexity. Traditional aromas of fresh Granny Smithapples and Bartlett Pears are joined by ripe harvest peaches offered by the Viognierin the blend. Marsanne is new in this vintage, where hints of honey and almond giveway to exotic floral notes of Jasmine on a summer breeze. The wine is crisp andfresh, a perfect quaffer that will coat the palate with peach and honey. A dollop ofMuscat lifts up the aromatics. Whimsical, yet serious, with layers of flavorfulintrigue. Rhone Rangers rejoice, this wine's for you.
