Roussanne

The Introduction

Roussanne

2020

The wine has a stunning pale straw colour. The aromas are that of white and yellow stone fruits, with underlying citrus zest and hints of jasmine. The wine is fresh and vibrant as it enters the mouth with a rounded almost creamy mid-palate with a stunning pithy grip on the finish which leads to an almost saline aftertaste, leaving one wanting a second sip.

Food Pairing
This wine is enjoyed just on its own or paired with poultry and fish dishes.

The grapes originate from a single vineyard situated on the Helderberg mountain in the Stellenbosch region.

Hand-picked grapes are delivered to the cellar and placed in a cold room overnight. The cold grapes are whole bunch pressed to tank and settled overnight before being taken to older 400L barrels the following day for fermentation and maturation.

The fermentation commenced with natural yeasts and took approximately three weeks to complete. The wine spent nine months in used 400L barrels on the gross lees with regular lees stirring.

Bottling
No malolactic fermentation took place and the wine was bottled in November 2020.
