About

It took a little convincing, but winemaker Rory Lane managed to the grower at Westgate vineyard into getting rid of some old Cabernet in place of three rows of Marsanne, and one each of Roussanne and Viognier.

It was a gamble, to be sure. Rhone white blends are loved by a niche nowhere near the extent of Cabernet.

Thankfully, for all concerned, the gamble paid off. This is the sixth release of this blend, and it’s a cracker.

The fruit is all picked, crushed and fermented together. By doing loads of barrel work, lees stirring, and allowing the juice to all go through malolactic fermentation, Rory has souped this wine up to the max.

It’s rich and full flowing with cleansing purity at its core.

This will be loved by those who enjoy whites with some punch.

What It Tastes Like

Super nutty, caramel popcorn and banana split. Slippery palate. Juicy texture. Has a nice line of acid through the mouth which keeps the focus. It has a warming feel to it. Toasty and a touch honeyed. Yummy.
