Origin

Domaine du Tunnel have two hectares of Roussanne in SaintPéray. This wine is made using fruit from four lieu-dits: Barras, Grand
Plantier, Combe and l’Arzalier. The Barras vineyard is planted at 250 metres above sea level, adding crisp acidity and aromatics to the blend.

Producer

Domaine du Tunnel is situated in an old steam train tunnel in the charming village of Saint-Péray in the Northern Rhône. This small
family domaine is run by Stéphane Robert and his wife Sandrine. Stéphane, also the winemaker, began in 1994 when he was just 24 years old by renting vines. He now owns 10 hectares of his own vines located in Cornas, Saint-Péray and Saint Joseph.

Grape Variety

100% Roussanne. The fruit was harvested by hand and immediately brought to the winery to be pressed. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks using indigenous yeasts. The wine was then aged in oak for between eight and ten months.

 

Food Match

Works a treat with pork ribs and a sticky BBQ style sauce, or slow cooked pork belly with a bell pepper and orange sauce.
