Alkimi The Good Earth Roussanne 2015
An enjoyable drink. It's rich as you'd expect being Roussanne but it's not over the top. Smells of honey toast, old school cubed cheddar, hay, and peach skin.
A portion went through malo and sat in a mix of stainless steel, a small amount of new oak and some older oak for six months. The acidity is quite tame and fruit is linear in the mouth. There's white fleshed stone fruit feels and apricot kernel at the death wrapped up by some ginger like spice which recedes ever so slowly. Nice touch. I'd have a glass.
Drink now to five years.
88/100 - Good
