Donkey & Goat 'Stone Crusher' Skin-Fermented Roussane

Donkey & Goat 'Stone Crusher' Skin-Fermented Roussane

*Skin-Contact White

 

Notes from Jenny & Francois:

Vinification Method: Fermented with wild yeast in open top wood vat. The wine spends about 12 days on the skins, and is pressed off the skins to complete fermentation in neutral oak barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with a small addition of sulfur.

 

Tasting Note: Grilled peach, cinnamon, whiffs of clove and a fleeting hint of freshly inhaled honeysuckle reminds us of warm summer nights during childhood. Floating like a butterfly on your tongue, Stone Crusher builds slowly with beautiful freshness, acidity and round tannins tingling your mouth.

 

Pairing: With chewy tannins and the structure of a red wine, this wine goes in many directions. With pork, Vietnamese cuisine, winter vegetables and raw and cooked seafood to name a few. If you have the patience to wait, this wine will age slowly and beautifully. Tannins will integrate, revealing a depth and concentration with endless freshness.

 

Winery Tasting Notes:

With chewy tannins reminiscent of a red varietal, this wine finds its perfect balance to the rich, fruity structure of Roussanne. If you have the patience to wait, this wine will age slowly and beautifully. Tannins will integrate, revealing a depth and concentration with endless freshness.

Beyond its bright notes of mandarins, dried apricots and white peaches, Stone Crusher also flaunts serious tannins and hefty structure. The wine is satisfyingly dry and elegant without compromising its fruit-forward aromatics. Pay closer attention and you’ll notice subtle notes of white tea and orange blossoms before a long finish. Pairs lip-smackingly well with honey-mustard porkchops.
