$32 from Cloudwine. With the Barossa Valley having secured an international reputation for Grenache and Shiraz, the continual absence of white Rhone varietals remains a perplexing issue. Michael Hall is one of few on the valley floor who does produce lovely renditions of Roussanne. The 2011 vintage was limited to 1200 bottles of this great tasting Roussanne. It was produced from only 1.4 tonnes of hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed fruit from Stonewall Valley, matured in 20% new French barriques. Clear, sunflower gold shine, with a ripe nose of waxy lemons, honey melon and honeysuckle. 12.9% alc. Med+ bodied, lovely sweet acidity, generous mid-palate that comprises layers of lemon curd, passionfruit, white grapefruit and melon flavours. Drink now. 90-91. Great paired with roast chicken, with a side of baba ghanoush, charred eggplant and peppers. Current vintage (from Greenock): 2014, $38.
