The dominant variety is roussanne which provides structure and finesse and ties the three varieties together. The viognier offers a pure, floral lift and finishes the wine with refinement and elegance. The marsanne gives the wine some palate texture and richness. This blend demonstrates that these non-traditional varieties to the Barossa have adapted to their new home just as well as their red counterparts have done over the last century or so.
Although beautifully enjoyable in its youth with sashimi and fresh shellfish, this wine will continue to increase in complexity with time and should provide compelling drinking over the coming years.
