Michael Hall Wines Barossa Valley Greenock, Roussanne 2015
'The Roussanne grape owes its name to the reddish or russet bloom it develops on its skin as it reaches full maturity. Difficult to grow, susceptible to wind damage and mildew, this grape is late ripening and ideally suited to the Barossa climate. For wine nerds like me: Hand picked on 12 February, destemmed and pressed, wild yeast barrel fermented, 25% Malolactic, ten months in French Oak Barriques (damy), racked to tank, fined and filtered.'
