94/100 – Halliday Wine Companion

“Two proprietary blocks contribute, later and earlier ripening. Hand picked, basket pressed and fermented spontaneously in French oak puncheons (25% new). Sea spray, rooibos, quince and lemon pith. Stone fruits tucked amidst the fray. A fine, textural, forceful and filigreed finish, marked by a burst of fruit weight.” – Halliday Wine Companion

Tasting Note: 100% Roussanne, vines grafted in 2003. Intrigued by this rare golden beauty, whose origins lie in the Rhône Valley of southern France, we have been producing Roussanne since 2007. Expect fragrance, power, and savoury textural delight with great rewards in the cellar, for those who can wait.

Winemaking Notes: Sourced from two blocks within our estate, the late ripening (28th March) Block 6 brings a more restrained and finer expression, while the early ripening (11th March) Block 20 gives bolder characters and generosity. Hand-picked and basket pressed, with low extraction to reduce any potential broadness. No acidification. No sulphur added until post fermentation to limit the binding of excessive varietal trademark tannin and accentuate texture. The un-fined and unsettled juice was transferred to French oak puncheons (25% new), where it underwent wild yeast fermentation. 10% of the blend had extended skin contact. The wine was matured for 5 months, stirred monthly with the lees retained. Bottled October 2021.
