Yangarra Roussanne 2013

I'm reminded of Debussy's "La fille aux cheveux de lin" (girl with the flaxen hair) when taking in this wine in glass. A composed wine of delicate honey, honeysuckle and suggestions of citrus rind.

Beautifully composed mid-weight and mid-texture, a suggestion of minerality where the intensity of the wine builds. Honeyed, a gentle pinch of phenolics and a creamy-richness following through with a cascading length. Sublime. 92
