$25.20

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Rutherglen is renowned for producing flavoursome wines from varietals originating from the Rhone Valley in France. Viognier provides intense stone fruit flavours, Roussanne gives texture and Marsanne the crisp acidity. This wine is a fine example of a classic blend that delivers a full spectrum of flavours and texture all in harmonious balance. - Colin & Jules Campbell

Wine Making

Fruit was harvested at optimal ripeness and fermented at 14˚C to retain the inherent character of each varietal. The wine was partially matured in a mix of one and three year old French oak barrels and carefully blended just prior to bottling to attain a wine with perfect balance and complexity.

Cellaring

Whilst enjoyable as a young wine, we believe the wine has the necessary components to improve in bottle over the coming 3-5 years. A perfect match with flathead tails and aioli.

Palate:

Light straw. Lifted fresh spicy oak with hints of honey and apricot. Medium bodied and full flavoured, this wine has a mouthfilling palate showcasing flavours of fresh peach with lovely oak providing texture and balance. The finish brings forward spice to round out the crispness.
