Food Pairings for Texas Hills Vineyard Roussanne
Pale yellow color. Moderate aroma with youthful development and hints of pear and green on the nose. Medium bodied off-dry with tart acidity. Balance is fair and very flavorful with a medium finish. Strong palate of flowers and green grass.
Roussanne, a grape know primarily from the southern Rhone valley of France, it produces a full-bodied wine rich and complex, with distinct honey, floral and apricot flavors. This wine ages well and holds its acid allowing it to be enjoyed for years after bottling. Often blended, we have chosen to make a wine on its own merit and blend it with nothing. The berry is distinguished by a russet color when ripe – roux is French for the reddish brown color russet, and is probably the root for the variety’s name. The aroma of Roussanne is often reminiscent of a flowery herbal tea, and in warm climates (we do qualify), it produces wines of richness, with flavors of honey and pear, and full body.
