This release is 45% marsanne, 44% viognier and 11% roussanne. A favourite for many budget drinkers, and I suspect for most, unaware of what actually is in the blend. Kinda cool; should be more Australian wine like that. The wine is also fermented and aged in French oak. When did the bottle become so hefty [...]

Pairing 3: Duck Confit Bread Pudding with 2012 Roussanne

This pairing would make a convert of anyone who doubts that Roussanne is substantial enough to pair with traditional red wine partners. The fluffy and buttery bread pudding, served by Chef Jeffry, reminded me of Thanksgiving stuffing packed with egg, herbs and dried apricots. The slightly gamy duck flavors deepened the whole and brought out the apricot notes in the 2012 Roussanne , while the …

…Painted White 2012. This blend of Viognier ( 44%), Rousanne ( 30%), and Marsanne ( 26%) was aged for 10 months in French, American and Hungarian oak barrels. It presented a floral nose with a whiff of white pepper; a flush of tropical fruit flavors swept the palate at the end. I also enjoyed the fuller mouth feel. Elegant and complex yet unpretentious—the current label for the Painted White features something that resembles a mosh pit! The crisp, dry Rose 2012 featured …

alc. Grenache 55%, mourvèdre 23.5% roussanne 10%, cinsault 7% carignane 2.5%, grenache blanc 2%. Very pale pink color; beguiling aromas and flavors of strawberries, raspberries and red currants with a faint flush of blood orange and violets; a transparent filigree of limestone lends a crisp yet talc-like aura to the structure while tense acidity keeps it lively and appealing. Beautifully made. Excellent. About $ 18.

…and Viognier (below) are furthest along but even the late-budding Roussanne and Mourvedre are past the point where they could withstand a serious freeze.

As for frosts, so far we've dodged successfully. The last few nights were chilly (down into the mid-30's) but despite the cold air mass aloft, the nights stayed just cloudy enough to keep temperatures above freezing. We're expecting one more cold -- but probably not frosty -- night tonight, and then a warming trend is …

varietals ( Syrah/ Shiraz, Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, Grenache, Mourvedre, Carignan, Petite Sirah as well as some others) over internationally popular Bordeaux and Burgundy varietals ( Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir).

Ido, did you have much experience with Rhone/Med varietals in your studies overseas?

"Yes, I had grown Carignan, Syrah Mourvedre, Grenache, Roussanne, Marsanne and Marselan grapes mainly …

…62% grenache, 17% mourvèdre, 9% roussanne, 6% grenache blanc, 6% Cinsault from the Central Coast of California. Fresh fruit, nice acid and realistic alcohol level ( 12.5%) made for a thirst quenching and slurpable match with the spicy dish. The bottle (which sells for under $ 20) disappeared as quickly as the eggplant.

I also envisioned a nice Etna Rosso (or Rosato). I've been thinking a lot about Salvo Foti and his I Vigneri wines, and I remember …

Viognier, White Riesling, Emerald Riesling, Colombard, Roussanne and Marsanne and reds such as Carignan, Cabernet Franc, Syrah/ Shiraz, Petite Sirah and Marselan. Don't be surprised if there's other grapes you've never tasted or even heard of and if you thought you didn't like a grape varietal before maybe because its because you haven't tasted a good enough example before. Here's your chance.

Jacob's Dairy and Hashomron Cheeses will …

2010, Paso Robles. 13.5% alc. 2,100 cases. 60% roussanne, 35% grenache blanc, 5% picpoul blanc. Pale straw-gold color; lovely balance and poise, light on its feet with a wonderful well-knit texture with finely-honed acidity and plangent steely, limestone qualities; again, a white wine of shades and degrees of nuance, lightly spiced, delicately fitted with lemon and pear flavors and a hint of apricot; all bound with that spruce-tinged minerality. Excellent. About $ 40
