This Roussanne was carefully grown at our winery vineyard in Werribee. A wet spring set up the year however the summer was long and dry with no disease pressure, Grapes were hand harvested in the cool of the morning at optimum flavour ripeness.
The fruit was gently whole-bunch pressed and left to settle overnight prior to racking. The primary ferment was fermented at cooler temperatures to retain fruit aromas. After primary ferment, it was gravity fed into older French hogshead barrels for further maturation. It was left on light lees to develop further complexity for six months prior to bottling in early December.
Light straw with an olive green hue and brilliant clarity.
White florals, gravelly sands with pithy tangelo notes and hints of lees derived complexity.
A generous mouth filling palate shows rich peaches and cream that flows on and on. The high pH gives the wine lovely mouth-coating texture and warmth. The palate is long and
flowing with oodles of flavour. The fine lacey tannins frame the wine and the fine acidity keeps the palate fresh and crunchy. This 2018 Rose is a dangerously drinkable wine best enjoyed chilled with friends on a warm day.
Stuffed tempura zucchini flowers, stuffed sepia, grilled octopus with paprika.
