Marsanne Viognier Roussanne 2019 Limited Release

Jenni Port – Halliday Review Published 01 August 2020

“Rhone Valley white varieties are definitely suited to the Rutherglen climate. Here, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts with each contributing to a complex set of aromas and flavours. Beeswax, honeysuckle, peach and lanolin fragrance. There’s an attractive wildness on the palate with preserved lemon, grilled-apricot and apple. A medium-bodied presence with texture adds to the overall impact.”

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Pale, brilliantly clear, light yellow/green. Lifted stonefruit, apricot, lightly toasted oak.

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.
