A very pale, limpid straw colour. Delicately perfumed and fresh, offering aromas of orange blossom, apricot and honeysuckle, with a sprinkling of aromatic herbs, very subtle oak nuances and a distinct whiff of mineral/wet stone. Roussanne normally tends to have a rich, slightly oily texture to the palate, but this one is beautifully fresh, fruity and crisp, like biting into a just-ripe nectarine or dessert apple, with subtle hints of fennel and clove. Essentially bone dry, with soft citrus acidity and a streak of stony minerality, which adds a rather delicious and refreshing orange peel and sherbert tang to the surprisingly long finish. Delicious!
