2014 Texas Roussanne
43 cases produced
The Roussanne grapes were grown to produce a fine dessert wine. Harvested at 32 brix, this dessert wine was made in typical Madeira fashion. Aged in the Madeira House on the William Chris Estate, this wine has been baked in neutral barrels and fortified with the finest brandy.
Rusty golden hue with aromatics of Oloroso Sherry, salted and roasted almonds, grilled pineapple, dried apricot, and preserved lemon. Viscous and decadent with concentrated tropical notes, roasted deep golden fruit layered with almond paste, finishing with confectioner’s sugar and hints of roasted coffee. Lovely now, or a very long cellar life for the patient.
