$25.00 CELLAR CLUB

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Roussanne is a late ripening Rhone variety that produces elegant, delicately scented wines with texture and depth of fruit flavour a feature. Rutherglen’s long, dry, autumn climate enables our grapes to reach full levels of maturity and flavour resulting in wines of great finesse. - Colin & Jules Campbell

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.

Palate:

Clear & brilliant straw. A lifted and fine nose of floral notes and pair. Barrel fermentation adds depth with hints of soft warm oak. The palate is bright and fresh 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.
