About the Wine: There is not much Roussanne, one of the Rhone Valley’s premier white grapes, grown in California. This wine is sourced from grower Larry Mettler’s vineyard in Lodi. Whole cluster pressed then fermented in neutral oak with native yeast. It was bottled after relatively short barrel aging (6 months), which we believe maintains purity of fruit.
Tasting Notes: The wine serves up a wonderful mineral core with bright acidity for good structure. Hints of stone fruit, citrus and jasmine give it a freshness that lingers long on the palate.
Mensch wines are made with the new flash-détente technique that allows us to flash-heat our grapes straight out of the vineyard. We never heat the wine. Both white and red wines are barrel fermented with native yeast.
Mensch Zinfandel is full-bodied and made in Lodi. It offers a spicy, zippy tasted of black cherry, licorice, chocolate and herbs.
