About The Harvest
Yield: 5t/ha
In The Cellar
There is only one single barrel of this gorgeous and most sensuous white wine. The older large barrel has added richness and texture to the Roussanne. The nose attracts with yellow peach and apricot fruit, a lemongrass spiciness and a gentle toasty overlay. The palate is irresistible as it intrigues all the senses. It is dry, yet it seems to have a sweetness; it is vibrant, yet retiring; shy yet forward; elegant yet forceful.
Additional Information
An absolute pleasure to drink it leads you on with each glass more exciting than the last. Drink with grilled game fish, smoked chicken, small game or poultry.
