Description 

Latta Roussanne Lawrence
Serious white wine that is vibrant gold in the glass, with honeysuckle, kumquat, lemon curd, beeswax and wet stone. This beguiling wine has richness, minerality and structure. The warm 2013 vintage had us pursuing balance all year. Canopy management was crucial to even and tempered ripening. We sprawled the west side of the vine rows to keep sunburn out and freshness in. A cropload of 3.1 tons/acre kept acids correct, sugar at bay and intensity piling on. The Roussanne was whole cluster pressed and fermented native in barrel, a mix of barriques and puncheons with 20% new French oak from Jupille. The wine rested in barrel for 16 months until bottling.

Lawrence vineyard is a cool site overlooking the Royal Slope and the Saddle Mountains to the south. The Roussanne block sits at 1450 feet of elevation in Taunton silt loam soils that give way to broken basalt. The sloped elevation of Lawrence gives it protection from frost that wreaks havoc in vineyard sites lower on the slope. The long cool growing season is ideal for serious white wine such as this Roussanne.
