Roussanne 2020, Ken Forrester Wines

£26.50 per bottle

About this wine

Ken Forrester Roussanne is a cellar exclusive and made in limited quantity, so we feel feel very privileged to have received a small allocation in the UK, of this gorgeous and most sensuous white wine. The older large barrels have added richness and texture without any hint of flab.  Elegant, rich and restrained with hints of lime blossom, soft on the palate with a gentle structure, this classic Rhone grape thrives in the Mediterranean climate of the Cape of Good Hope.

Ageing potential: This wine whilst perfectly accessible in youth will reward good cellaring and keeping for up to 10 years.

Food pairing: A classic wine; perfect with smoked fish or chicken, anchovies on the grill or even a tangy Caesar salad.

Very Limited Stock!

A bold, weighty white varietal it has a delightfully rich mouthfeel supporting the sweet green herb, citrus and honey like flavours. An under-rated variety for sure, it is steadily growing in popularity around the world with notable examples appearing in Australia and South Africa."
