A Roussanne with more energy and freshness and fantastic mid palate density. Hints of flowers, but an emphatic minerality and salinity on the nose. Beautiful, unctuous body, white stone fruit, earthy minerality, nice extract that finishes long.
From Alban clone vines on Bradley Brown's 1,300-foot-high estate vineyard and aged in both amphora and oak, this epic bottling shows clean lines of dried lemon skin, lemon curd, pear cream and a hint of pineapple on the nose. The generous and youthful palate is clean and grippy with flavors of honeysuckle, lemon and pear, framed by bright acid. It will last for years.
Notes of beeswax, honey and white peach introduce the 2015 Roussanne Homestead Block, a full-bodied, satiny wine with nice balancing acidity and a pure, moderately long finish. This is a characterful Roussanne that should drink well for the next 5-6 years, given its outstanding concentration and balance.
