Reviews

"Beechworth blend of roussanne and marsanne from one of the region’s brightest stars. It sees some barrel time but that input has been deftly handled. It’s arrestingly floral and lifted – it almost smells riesling-esque – but the palate pours on the power and texture. This is both highly drinkable and highly impressive at once. Slate and stone fruits, spice and those floral, smoky, almost gravelly notes. Mouthful is a key aspect of the wine’s charms. We have an excellent wine on our hands here."

Winemaker Notes

"The Domenica Roussanne Marsanne is blended from separately fermented varietal parcels, due to the propensity for marsanne to ripen ahead of roussanne. The hand picked fruit was harvested fully ripe, at around 12.5 beaume, in late march 2012. A light crushing was followed by pressing in a traditional 1 tonne hydraulic wooden basket press. The juice was handled oxidatively, to ensure colour stability and ageing ability, and cold settled overnight before being transferred to young, but not new, french barriques for fermentation, which proceeded naturally, with wild yeast. This adds richness and body to the wine. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation, also wild, and then matured on lees until blending for bottling in February 2013. The blend is comprised of 60% roussanne, 35% marsanne and 5% viognier. The wine was only lightly fined with isinglass and bentonite, in order to maintain some of the important phenolic characteristics typical of the white Rhône varieties, providing texture and mouthfeel. No filtration was undertaken."
