Texas Hills Vineyard Roussanne 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Texas Hills Vineyard has always championed environmentally correct ways and works to protect our environment by growing the vineyard in a sustainable organic fashion. This means that we use the least amount of chemicals as the Texas Hill Country will allow. We use turkey compost to fertilize and remove weeds with a mechanical devise called a "French hoe." We are occasionally forced to use a few fungicides, especially after the temperature reaches daytime highs over 90 degrees, and sulfur and copper — our natural fungicides — are no longer as effective.

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.
