Roussanne is a popular white variety from the Rhone Valley in South Eastern France. It is a little like Chardonnay in its flavour profile. This Roussanne was supplied to us from a grower in Nagambie and was fermented in a mixture of large oak vessels and stainless tanks before being blended and bottled without the use of fining agents and with minimal filtration keeping with our winemaking philosophy of minimum intervention.
Our Roussanne has lovely aromatics of stone fruit and melon the palate also has these delicious fruit characters with some roundness from partial Malolactic fermentation and yeast stirring from the barrel fermented component.
FOOD Enjoy this wine with fresh prawns with a squeeze of lime juice.
CELLARING Perfect to drink now it will develop warm toasty characters as it ages over the next six years.
