Stellenbosch Roussanne 2019, Rustenberg

£12.25 per bottle

About this wine

Rustenberg is a true pioneer in the production of Roussanne in South Africa, importing the first plant material into the country in the late 1990’s and producing the first single varietal Roussanne in 2004.  Roussanne is not overtly fruity but has wonderful minerality, palate weight and texture that is emphasised with careful bottle aging.  The 2019 vintage has a fragrant perfume of lilies, as well as peach and apricot fruit with complex flavours of green apple evident on the palate. Characters of sweeter pineapple, flesh out the mid-palate and give weight to a peppery finish with great minerality.

Ageing potential: Excellent maturation potential under ideal cellaring conditions.

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."
