Yalumba Eden Valley Rousanne 2014

Other White from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 15-Aug-2017
Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, a little lighter on the edge. This ha a full, solid bouquet, quite Semillon-like with yellow stonefruits and citrus fruits entwined with notes of waxy lanolin. And light lime and herb elements. Some savoury, nutty oak shows and reductive suggestions. The palate is dry, and firm, still very lively, with a heart of stonefruits, lanolin, wax and herbs, unfolding honeysuckle and florals. This is up-front in expression with good body, but a tight core. The mouthfeel has some texture and grip, which carries the wine to a mouthwatering finish. This shows winemaker inputs. Serve with poultry and pork dishes over the next 3 years. The fourth vintage of this ‘experimental’ wine, made in commercial quantities. Fruit from three sites in the Eden Valley, indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned oak with high solids to 12.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in barrel with batonnage. 17.0+/20 Aug 2017 RRP $28.00
