About

In 1983 the CSIRO brought the first cuttings of Roussanne into this country. The de Pury family planted them alongside some pre-existing Marsanne and more than thirty years on, this tiny vineyard produces one of the country's greatest examples of this classic Rhone-inspired white blend. The wine is matured for around 8-9 months in old oak yet maintains amazing freshness and structure. It is complex and layered without ever being overbearing. On the 2014 version, Gary Walsh commented that "there’s no doubt about the pulsating long finish.." and every day it spends in bottle, it just looks better and better. The amount of this wine made every year is tiny. Given the quality of the producer, the vintage and the reputation and scarcity of this wine, it would make an excellent addition to the cellar of any fan of textural whites.

What it Tastes Like

"It has a subtle perfume of honeysuckle, low-key pear and peach, and a whiff of struck match and spice. Light to medium bodied, almost silky and glossy, but shot through with this delightful flinty and citrus-laced fresh acidity. Ripe lemon and lime, perhaps, yet there’s no doubt about the pulsating long finish. I’d say this is going to cellar beautifully too." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
