2010  Roussanne

Tasting Note:

Fragrant flinty minerals, peach and apricot fruit characters with complex flavours of green apple evident on the palate. Characters of sweeter pineapple flesh out the mid-palate and give weight to the finish.

Vinification

A lovely cold, wet winter in 2009 allowed for good, even budding of the vineyards during spring, and then the beautiful, warm, sunny days in summer resulted in great flavor and colour development in the berries. Full fruit flavours and soft tannins with good aromatics and ideal acidity made 2010 and excellent vintage for Roussanne. The grapes for the Roussanne were selectively hand-picked into small crates, chilled overnight and whole bunch pressed, before being fermented in tanks. After 3 months on lees, the wine was stabilized for bottling.
