2015 “The Good Earth” Roussanne
Bronze Medal – Victorian Wines Show 2015
The appearance is golden. The nose shows aromas of aniseed, freshly cut straw and caramelised honey. Subtle lime and stone fruit notes are also apparent.
True to Roussanne’s reputation “the red wine drinkers white wine”, the palate is firm and rich where phenolics and acid play a major role in the texture of this wine. There are fruit notes of lime pith, rock melon, green apple skin, and confectionary pear drop. Woven in the palate are buttery, shortbread notes with a honeyed and floral finish.
