About The Wine

Roussanne can be a difficult variety to get right on its own.

The variety is often used as a blending component,  however the best Roussannes are full of weight, ripe fruit and great power.

Here the Shadowfax team has pulled one out of the bag. This is Roussanne allowed some time on skins, sent to barrel and left to develop texture and weight from time on lees. 

If you're looking to see this variety strut its stuff solo, this is a great value place to start.

About Shadowfax

Alister Timms is the man directing the winemaking show at Shadowfax wines in Werribee, VIC.

He combines excellent estate grown fruit from their Werribee and Macedon Ranges vineyards with some fruit from good growers in regions such as the Barossa Valley and Geelong to create an eclectic array of high-class wines.

Pinot Noir and Chardonnay is their main focus, but the quality from the rarely seen Mondeuse to Barossa Shiraz is uniformly excellent.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Very savoury, all nuts and oatmeal, toast and halva, nougat and honey-laced-apples. Bouquet and palate. Has a richness, indeed this is at the fuller, bolder end of the white wine personality zone, but the gist is great, it drinks a charm, refreshment is there, texture holier than thou. Think nuts and ginger, ripe lemons and bitter green apple. Absolutely love this. Complex, personality dense wine of high drinkability. Bring it on." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
