Roussanne Barossa South Australia
Torbreck founder Dave Powell acquired prime viticultural land at Marananga in 1994, with the express purpose of establishing blocks of white Rhône varietals. The precious plantings on Descendant Vineyard are now fully mature, Roussanne in particular lends itself to the vinification of an artisanal small batch effort, crafted in the minimalist old world way. Its exceptional purity of fruit is fully reliant on determining the ideal time of harvest within the narrow window of perfect ripeness. Each individual row of vines are assessed daily in the lead up to picking.
Vibrant hues. Vibrant perfumes of nectarine, cinnamon spiced peach, almonds and pear. Fine and delicate, its persistence of palate and formidable length flows with lemon and nectarine fruit flavours. Soft, gently textured, the naturally balanced acidity will make a sensational accompaniement to savoury game birds, offal and all fine gourmadise.
