Yalumba Samuel's Garden Roussanne 2015
Honeysuckle, some tropical fruit and melons, a lick of lemon and what seems to be musk all get things moving. There's a fatness about it, really covering the width of the mouth. It's textural thanks to fermentation and seeing 10 months in old French oak. A dab of ginger before a dusting of fine spice to finish. Long to finish too.
At a recent dinner this was matched with pickled beetroot and goat's cheese - a dish I wouldn't have considered but it was my food and wine match of the night.
Drink now to five years.
91/100 - Very good.
