RICE SALAD WITH CURRY MUSTARD VINEGARETTE
FAUSSE PISTE WINERY
2010 FAUSSE PISTE ROUSSANNE L'ORTOLAN
"Light yellow color; oak, tart apple nose; oak, tart green apple palate; medium-plus finish." Cellartracker 88 points
Fruit sourced from the top section at Outlook Vineyard in the Rattlesnake Hills sub AVA of the Yakima Valley. Our Roussanne comes from a single acre block at 1100’ to 1400’ in elevation Rocky basalt based soils from a steep south facing hillside overlooking the Yakima Valley
Vintage 2011 provided us with a long but cool growing season with naturally low yields from the cold winter. Small clusters with thick skins slowly ripened with one of the coolest years on record.
Hand picked early September 2011 at 22.2 brix, hand sorted then pressed whole cluster over a long and delicate press cycle using a bladder press.
Fermented in an 1000l French oak oval cask using the native yeast provided from the vineyard, then aged for 9 months on the lees before being bottled unfined but filtered, with minimal so2 addition.
