2022 Michael Hall Barossa Valley Roussanne, Greenock
The Roussanne grape owes its name to the reddish or russet bloom it develops on its skin as it reaches full maturity. This grape is late ripening and ideally suited to the Barossa climate.
Fair winter rains were punctuated by a rare hailstorm in late October, damaging many of the young shoots and reducing yields. There followed a mild summer and unusually temperatures never exceeded 40C!
Hand-picked on the 17th of March, destemmed and pressed, fermented in tank and French oak puncheons (28% new), matured for nine months on lees. Filtered and bottled.
2240 bottles produced.
