Jamsheed Beechworth Roussanne 2014
Handpicked from the Warner Vineyard in Beechworth, three hours north of Melbourne. The vineyard is situated in the foothills of the Alpine Valley of Victoria and is composed of granitic-loam over clay and areas of slate and shale. The Roussanne is handpicked, whole bunch pressed and racked with full solids into older 800 and 500 litre French oak, fermented with indigenous yeasts and left sur lees for 8 months. Bottled November 2015.
The style is a fragrant and taut mineral edged wine with a spine of mineral/acid/phenolic drive that holds the length of the palate. Buttercup, white peach skin and quince fruits flesh out the palate.
Total production 250 dozen
