Roussanne 2016 Limited Release

An elegant wine with lime, pear & spice with subtle French oak

$30.00 CELLAR CLUB
$27.00

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Pale straw with a light green hue. A restrained and fine nose of lime peel, pears and herbal tea. Barrel fermentation adds depth with hints of roasted cashews.

Wine Making

Fruit was harvested in mid February and partially fermented in French oak puncheons. The wine spent a further nine months in oak prior to bottling.

Cellaring

Roussanne is a wine of subtlety and finesse and requires a sensitive hand in both the vineyard and winery. Whilst enjoyable as a young wine, we believe the wine has the necessary components to improve in bottle over the coming 3-4 years. A perfect match with cured kingfish and sashimi selection.

Technical

The Grapes: Roussanne grapes from our Rutherglen vineyards.
Date Tasted: December 2016
Alcohol: 13.0%
T.A (g/l): 7.5g/l
pH: 3.3pH

Palate:

The palate is crisp and fine with characters of pears, dried herbs, white pepper and a little spice. An excellent vintage has produced a wine with intense varietal fruit and a firm acid backbone. Time on lees has provided texture and integration on the mid palate before a lingering finish.
