Simonsig ?The Russety One? Roussanne 2012

The grapes were hand-picked and cooled overnight before being crushed directly into the press. Wild yeast fermented in 5 year old Allier medium toast barrique. The wine spent 13 months in wood before bottling in April 2013. Tasting Notes: Roussanne is subtle and restrained in its youth, but with a great reputation for long ageing. The citrus blossom and lemongrass aromas are given further impact by a zesty limestone minerality. The palate is full-bodied with a silky, viscous texture and a bright, natural acidity. Delicious floral, apricot and hints of honey linger on the palate of this hand-crafted wine.

Winemaker: Johan Malan
