Tasting Notes:
"From its silky, slightly smoky, oriental fragrance, which somehow smells like pale gold, through its mellow middle to the fine drawn-out tannins of its tail, it is simply one smooth lovely ride. Its flesh is plush without pudge, its acid solid but reserved, its length, poise and form just perfect. It will live, mellow, burnish and bloom for many years in the cellar."

Wine Composition: 100% Roussanne
Region: Estate grown in Kangarilla, McLaren Vale

Winemaking: Grown on a 2 acre block on ironstone gravelly sand. Hand-picked and whole berry pressed using basket press. Wild yeast ferment , 7 months in barrel (older oak) and stirred on lees.

Vineryard Information
In 2003 we grafted Roussanne over Cabernet Sauvignon roots and began the journey with this obscure variety (which is equally as rare in its original home of the southern Rhône), known for its savoury flavours, textural palate and rewards in the cellar. Our Roussanne is planted in soils of weathered sands mixed with ironstone gravels. We find it very important to shoot and bunch thin in February just before the berries begin accumulating sugar, and follow up with some leaf plucking, as the extra sunlight allows for the tannins to be tamed and ripeness to occur at lower sugar levels resulting in a more balanced and restrained style.
