Roussanne

2011 Roussanne Santa Barbara County

2011 Roussanne Santa Barbara County

With tongue firmly planted in cheek and our apologies to Sting – “Roooo-Sanne!  You don’t have to turn into red wine!”  It may sound odd, but in France, Roussanne is often blended with red wine. Here at Consilience, we think our New World approach to Roussanne is quite delicious.  In France, Roussanne is typically rather viscous or oily on the palate.  In stark contrast, ours shines brightly with crisp acidity and good minerality.  Subtle aromatics of honey and Japanese pear lead to a brilliant palate of orchard-fresh Fuji apple and orange blossom.  This simple, easy drinking white is perfect all on its own but it pairs well with most cheeses; especially triple crème brie, smoked Gouda and Mimolette.  Our Roussanne also pairs well with seafood dishes like fish tacos with lime spiked guacamole, cayenne-spiced crab cakes or Cajun shrimp and crab gumbo. Cheers!

2010 Roussanne Santa Barbara County

2010 Roussanne Santa Barbara County

With tongue firmly planted in cheek and our apologies to Sting – “Roooo-Sanne! You don’t have to turn into red wine!” It may sound odd, but in France, Roussanne is often blended with red wine. Here at Consilience, we think our elegant Roussanne shines on its own quite beautifully - showcasing subtle aromatics of white flowers and chamomile with flavors of pineapple, Japanese pear and white peach. While you can enjoy this enticing white without food, it matches deliciously with seafood dishes like crab cakes, halibut with thyme butter or grilled garlic shrimp. Or for an international flair, pair it with Moroccan peach roasted chicken, Thai pork satay with spicy peanut sauce or coconut curried fish.

2011 Viognier Santa Barbara County

2011 Viognier Santa Barbara County

Some words are used so commonly in the English language that it is easy to forget that they are actually French such as latté, café, bouquet, brunette, montage, encore or entrepreneur.  Viognier (pronounced vee-own-YAY) is French too and though it isn’t exactly a household word yet, we feel pretty confident that it will be soon.  All it takes is one sip to fall head over heels for Vio!  Delicious and balanced, with inviting aromas and flavors of pineapple, honey, nectarine and flowers, this wine is a seductive beauty.  Though you really don’t need food to enjoy this wine, Viognier pairs extremely well with many dishes.  Try some with squash blossoms stuffed with burrata, Shrimp Pad Thai, Jamaican jerk chicken, sweet and sour pork or a just simple snack of brie and crackers, preferably poolside with friends.
