Orange wine from California full of yeasty, yellow fruited, and mildly yerba mate-like tannins. This wine is a common white Rhone blend of Rousanne and Marsanne that makes for a full bodied wine with nice pear-apple aromas. Retianing fresh acidity, it is comparable to a cider or a sour beer in many ways. Lovely and a great deal for a wine of this caliber from California.
Notes from the producer:
"The 2014 "RouMars" is deep straw to gold in color, with noticeable cloudiness. The nose is striking, with typical Rousanne/Marsanne aromas of apple and lemon joined by exotic floral and mineral notes. The palate is bright, but also a little rich, with ripe apple joined by white tea flavors. The mouthfeel is quite unusual for a white wine, with tannin adding a unique component. This wine is not ideal for those who prefer a neutral wine like Pinot Grigio, but we believe it will appeal to those looking to surprise the palate and explore new flavors. We recommend serving it cold, with salty or briny food. It is a particularly lovely match with sushi, or anything with a soy sauce component."
