Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2014 Roussanne opens on the nose with intense pear, white flower, and beeswax. On the palate, the white fruit characteristic is showcased, with a perfumed florality, and slight brioche on the finish. What is most notable about this wine is its great harmony of acidity and body… the hedonistic fruit underpinned by a bright, but not oppressive acidity. This wine is young and will benefit from aeration or aging.
Vineyard Notes
The Blind Creek Vineyard, with the Similkameen’s steep valley walls directly to its northern flank, and great southern exposure, is the ideal site for growing Roussanne. Yields are meticulously managed, and plants are evaluated on a case by case basis. Like all Road 13 grapes, the vineyards were carefully tended with a combination of deficit irrigation, leaf pulling, and green harvest- in the quest for fruit of the utmost quality prior to any other intervention in cellar
Winemaker Notes
Grapes were picked at an optimum maturity level and juices were gently extracted with the use of our basket press. Aged in older French oak barrels for approximately 12 months, slightly more than 2 barrels of this were produced. One of the few examples of Roussanne to be found in B.C.
