Point Ormond, Roussanne 2013, Upper Goulburn, Australia
Tasting Note: Rhone-styled whites are gaining in marketshare, and Australia is seeking its piece of the market.
This wine proves Australia is a category competitor worthy of regard and notice.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of pear, green apple, blossom, lemon peel and hints of vanilla.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied roussanne is medium in acidity with flavors on the nose continuing to the palate along with yellow plum, lime and butter.
The wine has a medium-plus finish along with a creamy texture punctuated by citrus-infused moments.
This roussanne exceeds expectations at an affordable price point relative to its quality.
A good value!
