Description: Grapes are sourced from the single California Road Wetland vineyard. Roussanne was picked on the 22nd February and the Marsanne on the 3rd March at approx 13.5Be with the fruit in ideal condition. The Roussanne was crushed and held as chilled clarified juice then co-fermented with the Marsanne using a champagne yeast in a stainless steel static fermenter. The wine was transferred after 10 days into two new French oak hogshead and five three year old French oak barriques to complete primary and undergo malo-lactic fermentation. It was left on lees for three months and stirred weekly.
Tasting Note: Pale gold in colour - the result of extended skin contact with the Roussanne grapes - this is a rich and textural white wine. The nose and palate are redolent of honey suckle, apricot, peach and white flowers which lead onto a very long, full flavoured and rich palate with gentle acidity on the finish. Serve well-chilled.
