Church and State Roussanne 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom two warm sites on the Black Sage Bench, Coyote Bowl and Bella Vineyards, this is a fun introductory style of roussanne fermented in French oak, that seemingly, as Treve says, “amplifies and plumps up an already rich wine". Exotic spices, sandalwood, white peach, vanilla are all here on a fat palate. If you are a fan of rich and full-bodied whites on a plump, expansive palate, this is it. I think it is the perfect lobster wine but would be just as well-matched to a creamy pasta dish or your favourite buttery fish dish.Tasted: 12 August 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 29.99 winery online/direct Producer: Church & State WineryDistributors: Empson Wines Canada
