TarraWarra Estate, Roussanne, Marsanne, Viognier, Yarra Valley, 2016
Light gold colour with flaxen highlights. Honeysuckle florals mix with stonefruits and a savoury “roast chicken” crisps, briny undercurrent. Complex and layered with electric acidity giving a vibrancy to the weightier, textured fruit profile. Medium-full length of flavour that is highlighted with stonefruit and citrus cameos. An ideal match for richer lighter fleshed meats, pork and veal.
