Single vineyard blend of Marsanne and Roussanne from the Dabyminga Vineyard in the Tallarook district of the Upper Goulburn, Central Victoria. This is old fruit growin’ country, a high(ish) altitude region a one-and-a-half hour drive north from Melbourne. Grapes have been grown here since the 1960s. The Dabyminga site is granite, hornfels and quartz across a tapestry of aspects –a very beautiful site with sheer suitability to Rhone varietals. The vineyard is on way to being organically certified. These Rhone varietals are particularly tasty from up here.

This wine offers heady aromas of marzipan, bruised apple, white pepper and a hint of caramel. More mineral than fruit driven on the palate, it's less viscous in texture than you'd expect. Instead, it feels fairly taut and stony, with a long, tangy finish and a copper penny-like acidity.
