Tasting Notes:
A classic southern Rhone white from 2015. A beautifully fresh and fragrant wine, the Roussanne and Viognier take centre stage this year on both the nose and palate. Quite floral but exotic and a lovely dry quality to contrast with the round fleshy character of the wine. Only a whiff of the oak comes through. Good length.
