Roussanne is a key Rhone white grape variety, its unique characteristics are highly prized and it’s always been our intention to showcase this varietal with a single vineyard expression.
In this wine, the variety’s distinctive, varietal aromas have been subtly enhanced with lees contact creating a textured, elegant style.
The exceptional purity of fruit is completely reliant on the narrow window of ‘optimum ripeness’ and each row was assessed daily in the lead up to picking.

With a vibrant hue and distinctive aromatics of nectarine, cinnamon spiced pear, peach and almond, the nose is immediately rewarding. With a fine and delicate palate, a persistence and formidable length displays lemon and nectarine fruits. Showing a soft gently textured palate, the natural balanced acidity will enable this wine to cellar gracefully over the coming decade.
