Description

Roussanne is a white wine variety originally from the Rhône region in France. It’s known for its Russet colour grape, intrinsic ability to age, and difficulty to grow. Because of this, it’s rare as a single cultivar and often produced in a heavily oaked style. Mischa’s Roussanne is placed into old wood for 3 months to mature it, but not allow it to pick up any oaked flavors so you can experience the beautiful, bold, flavours this elegant Roussanne has to offer. Out of 12 vintages, this Roussanne is only the 4th to be placed into the bottle and in very limited quantity.
