2007 McGinley Vineyard, Roussanne
from Lionheart Wines
AmericanWinery.com is pleased to provide you with Winery-Direct information.
The warm afternoons and cool evening at McGinley vineyard allow for a long growing season resulting in finely balanced fruit with rich flavors and excellent acidity. The wine is barrel fermented and aged in a neutral French oak with 100% malolactic fermentation for an excellent creamy mouth feel.
The Roussanne is made with a delicious twist: lemon-green color; pronounced tropical aromas of key lime pie, pineapple, apricot, orange blossoms, pear, floral and Meyer lemon; flavors build upon the aromas adding oranges over a balanced acidity and creamy mouth-filling texture reminiscent of a cool dessert on a hot summer night.
Leon recommends serving this wine with grilled fish and pineapple kabobs, tropical fruit compote, pork dishes, Hawaiian pizza or key lime pie. It is ready to drink now with potential to age 2 to 4 years.
