Road 13 Roussanne 2017

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaRich, full, intense and heady, this roussanne was sourced from the Similkameen Valley, was whole cluster pressed, and fermented and aged in a myriad of vessels, from concrete eggs to stainless steel barrels to older French barrels. All the parts do not equal a better whole, however. This remains clunky and disjointed, with rich perfumed pineapple, apricot, pear nectar, big spice and vanilla all jockeying for position on the flabby and shorter palate. Less is more, and this wine allows roussanne to fulfill its more is more side.Tasted: 01 July 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 29.99 winery online, select private retailers Producer: Road 13Distributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
