2018 HOLUS BOLUS SANTA MARIA VALLEY ROUSSANNE
100% Roussanne. From a Biodynamically farmed portion of the Bien Nacido Vineyard, this classic white Rhone grape was made in a style to emphasize freshness, balancing its ripe apricot, pear and honey notes.
Try it with: From spicy Thai food to a rustic French pate, this versatile white inspires creative pairings. Co-Founder/Winemaker Peter Hunken loves this with South Indian rava dosas, “a touch spicy but delicious and filling!”
