21 Colibri Roussanne Free Run
In the world of white grapes, Roussanne is a blessing and a curse. In the spring, it is a godsend because it comes out quite late and usually avoids frost (a characteristic not shared by its close relation – Viognier). While Roussanne skirts the cold, it is also plagued by sensitivities to even the slightest nutrient deficiencies in the soil and is easily stunted. Farming efforts have persevered though, and we have yet another amazing offering of this unique grape. The 2021 vintage gave us ample crop from this block and made yet another varietally correct and pure wine. Asian pear, hints of green pineapple, baking spices and lemony notes sparkle on the nose and palate making this yet another classic Colibri offering.
