TarraWarra Estate, Roussanne, Marsanne, Viognier, Yarra Valley, 2017

Rife with ginger spice, apricot, barley meal, lemon pickle, crisp taco shell and briny oyster. Medium full push through the palate: that ginger dominant over dehydrated apricot cheeks and bergamot tea. Has persistence and soft varietal waxiness with clean acidity to cut through the depths. Holds intrigue through balance.

RRP: $30
Alc: 12.7%
Rating: 17/20
