Donelan's 2011 Venus is a blend of mostly the Roussanne grape with a touch of Viognier and hint of Chardonnay. Roussane is known for its strong aroma, and this varietal grown in Sonoma County by the Donelan family does not disappoint. The vibrant fragrance is very herbal and slightly citrusy, almost as complex as its full-bodied taste. Fermented in stainless steel barrels and neutral oak, the wine has a bit of a tart, but fresh flavor. If you desire a bit more sweetness, the Venus blend makes an excellent spritzer. The cool, fresh taste is ideal for unwinding on a late summer afternoon. ]]>
