2018 Malene Rolle
We source our Rolle - also known as Vermentino - from vineyards owned and farmed by Seghesio Family Vineyards since 1961. This vineyard in the northern Russian River Valley was planted in 2008 on devigorating alluvial gravels. Experiencing frequent morning fog and cool maritime breezes, daytime temperatures are moderate, making it well suited for growing this Meditteranean white varietal.
Rolle is a traditional component of classic Rosé and one of our favorite varietals when bottled on its own. Our 2018 Rolle possesses layers of exuberant fruit, a full-bodied texture and a viscous palate that is rich and long lasting. Pale straw in color, this wine opens with aromas of lemon peel and fresh apricot, leading into hints of Bosc pear. The palate is bright and mouthwatering, with flavors of green apple and lemon cream leading to a long, stony finish.
