Rusden Driftsand GSM 2014

A G/S/M in proportions of 45/45/10 respectively. Florals, aromatic spice - carries that lighter, elegance often associated with the Driftsand and the sandy soils of (Barossa Valley sub-region) Vine Vale.

Light, supple, an elegance; black cherry, a little blackberry compote. Has a good natural freshness to it too. 

It's long on the finish: fruit in abundance. It somewhat feels like the onset of summer when the first fruit becomes available. Savoury nuances serve to complete the picture. Delivers in spades, and at $20 does so impressively. 92 

Tasted on: Thursday 28th April, a Root day
