There's no doubt about it, the Jamsheed wines are amongst the most exciting in the country. Thrilling, authentic wines packed with personality. Syrah is what Gary hangs his hat on, but his Roussanne is one of the country's best. It comes from the Warner vineyard that is famously used by Giaconda in the Northern Victorian cool climate region of Beechworth, and it receives the full box and dice. Whole bunch pressed, wild yeasts, old large format French oak, lees stirring - all doing their bit to add body and texture to the wine. Gary's been picking this wine earlier and retaining great natural acidity, meaning that despite all of its texture and body it remains fresh and vibrant. If you're into your Chardonnays and other full-bodied whites then this will be right up your alley. It's wonderful.

What it Tastes Like

The nose really jumps out at you, with aromas of peaches, melons, honey, minerals and spice. It nails that balance between luscious texture and natural acidity, with more of a mineral edge than in last year's rendition. It's round and utterly mouthfilling, with layers of stone fruits, buttery texture and cleansing acidity all doing their bit. So much going on yet so easy to drink. Love it!
