Qupé Roussanne Santa Maria Valley Hillside Estate Bien Nacido Vineyard 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is 100% Roussanne grown on a west facing hillside at Bien Nacido Vineyard. This 5 acre block of Roussanne was planted exclusively for Qupé and exclusively to the Tablas Creek clone. It is a special varietal, grown in one of our best terroirs and makes out most important white wine. The Santa Maria Valley is a cool growing area for Roussanne, it ripens late in the season with naturally high acidity. This is a rich, aromatic wine of great depth and complexity. The aroma shows a citrus-y orange peel character, along with mineral, flowers, and tropical fruit custard. Substantial in the mouth with mouthwatering freshness. Drink this over the next two years, then put some in the cellar and wait until it’s 10 years old, it will be worth it!
