Yangarra Estate Ovitelli Blanc 2020

 


Welcome to the debut Ovitelli Blanc release. A magnificent wine, there is plenty going on as you'd expect from Yangarra Estate. The back label states, "Renowned for our Grenache and respecting the distant homelands of this variety, we planted its white varietal cousins." Lovers of texture and interest ought to dip their oar in.

Tim Smith Bugalugs White 2022

 

Becoming a grandfather has certainly softened Tim Smith. He only used to make a Riesling and Viognier. Now he's blending white and making a Rosé. Who is this guy?

Drink this though. It's good. Very good! I feel all levels of Parisian drinking it. Classy and then some.

Yalumba Eden Valley Roussanne 2020

 

Layered and textured, there is plenty to admire and adore. Part of the Samuel's Collection, this range represents great drinking. This Roussanne is Yalumba's entry-level and it's a fab alternative to Chardonnay.

Lienert Estate Roussanne 2021

 

I've said it before, these Lienert wines have such impressive shelf appeal. This is a damn good Roussanne too - a win-win.

Guigal Cote Du Rhone Blanc 2019

 


This Guigal arrived as part of a sample pack from Yalumba in readiness for International Viognier Day on 30 April. If you were to describe this wine using an emoji, it would be 'meh'.

Yelland and Papps Single Vineyard Roussanne 2021

 

A Roussanne that has an absorbing presence as it rolls through the mouth with absolute ease. Well played here from Yelland & Papps - the masters of the variety in Australia.

Yelland and Papps Roussanne 2021


Always so intriguing. Always so delicious. If interest and complexity float your boat, get your oar and paddle this way. Autumn is the season for textured whites and this rockets to the top of that list ready to deliver supreme joy.

d'Arenberg The Money Spider Roussanne 2021


Fleshy and rounded, I like the cut of this wine's jib. Perhaps we need to start a Roussanne Appreciation Society? I'd commence the journey with this wine - great value for $22 and it's certified organic too.

Yelland and Papps Limited Cuvée Roussanne 2016

 

Find me a better producer of Roussanne in Australia - I dare you. The consideration, judicious handling and layers of interest Yelland & Papps generate from this variety are simply incredible. Here is a Roussanne of unrivaled proportions. An excellent wine hands down.

Langmeil Three Gardens Viognier Marsanne Roussanne 2020

 


Love a considered and layered blend? Go here. 94 points for a lobster (Australian slang for a $20 note). Woah!

Indigo Vineyard Roussanne 2018

 

Just like the rollercoaster for little kids at the theme park, this slowly works into the corners and maneuvers about with ease as though it's on rails. When you want a white with some personality, hello Roussanne!

Tellurian TWB 2020

 


A terrifically long and textural blend here from Heathocote's Tellurian Wines. Roussanne, Marsanne and Grenache Gris come together and what a fabulous debut it is! More like this, please.

Yelland and Papps Second Take Roussanne 2020

 


There is so much interest to peruse with this wine. Not fined nor filtered, this Roussanne is from the Barossa's Yelland & Papps is in its raw form and generates maximum impact.

Yangarra Estate Roux Beaute Roussanne 2019

 



Brilliance looks like this. A wonderfully layered Roussanne from Yangarra Estate.

Jester Hill Shiraz Roussanne NV

 


An interesting blend that brings together portions of Shiraz from 2018 & 2019 and a splash of Roussanne (2019).

Lienert Estate Roussanne 2020

 


I love these Lienert labels. They ooze shelf appeal. Little gold lightning bolts adorn this bottle - clear glass, a black label and gold highlights draw the eye. Smart wine this too.

Glen Garvald by Levantine Hill Marsanne Roussanne 2019

 

Clever. Levantine Hill doesn't miss the mark if at all and it's hard to see that changing any time soon with Paul Bridgeman at the wheel. This is a fabulous blend.

Jester Hill Touchstone Roussanne 2019

 

Not a big red drinker but seeking a white with a bit more depth? Try a Roussanne like this to get your juices flowing.

Yangarra Estate Blanc 2020

 


Push back those bifold doors and sit on the deck as you chillax with the afternoon breeze on your face and a generous pour of this Blanc in the glass.
