Le Vieux Pin Roussanne

Le Vieux Pin Roussanne 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Sev's own vineyard on the Black Sage Bench, her 'little Chateauneuf du Pape', this was barrel fermented in all new wood where it remained for 9 months, with regular b√Ętonnage. Lovely honeyed nut nose leads into creamy pear on the savoury body, drawn by fine grained texture to a spiced nutmeal finish. Very elegant and long lived, this is a beautifully fine, structural and finessed wine. Only 50 cases made.Tasted: 26 August 2020Tasted by: Treve RingProducer: Le Vieux PinDistributors: Winery Direct
