Donelan Venus Roussane 2012

£39.50 GBP £45.00 GBP

Donelean are a small, boutique Sonoma based winery producing Syrah, Grenache, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Roussanne and Viognier. 

They have elected to prize quality over all other factors. They start with great terroir, because site trumps all variables, and then proceed with extreme selectivity, conscientious winemaking, and extensive blending trials.

Lifted floral notes of white flowers, peach, apricot and citrus. As dry as you will get for this style, very elegant, firm structure with flavours of lime, lemon, orange and apple. Gently oaked, balanced with a long finish.
