Roussanne 2017 Limited Release

$25.00 CELLAR CLUB
$22.50

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Brilliant pale green, yellow gold. A restrained and fine nose of clean white fruit. Barrel fermentation adds depth with hints of fragrant oak.

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: March 2017
Alcohol: 13%
T.A (g/l): 7.5g/l
pH: 3.3pH

Palate:

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