A very attractive blend with hints of orange and savoury flavours, and a touch of sweetness on the palate.

Whole-bunch-pressed Roussanne grapes were fermented and matured in 2 x 300 litre Burgundian Hogsheads (Barrels) for 3 months. It was than blended with super-ripe tank-fermented Viognier, and low alcohol Semillon (10% oak-fermented) to create this unusual, yet rewarding blend.

This wine will complement a lightly spiced meal, or simply be enjoyed on its own.

50% Semillon, 45% Viognier, 5% Roussanne.
