'It has plenty of character, lots of interest, high drinkability. Win win win.' - Wine Front!
This The Lost Plot range has come about through a partnership that stretches across to a winemaker in France and back to his buddy in Australia; they make a bit of wine in each country together. They’ve picked some interesting places to eke out some small batch wines. Nagambie roussanne is something out of the box, and here comes from Box Grove Vineyard. The wine ferments in barrel and is left on lees until bottling. Bright golden colour; depth of bouquet and flavour match well. It’s heady in honey-drizzled apples, halva nuttiness, wet slate. The palate is firm and full, sort of rich but has such crisp acidity that any richness is whipped away to a fine, wet stony finish with a little sweetness staining the palate. It has plenty of character, lots of interest, high drinkability. Win win win.

The fruit for our Roussanne comes from grapes grown by Sarah Gough of the Box Grove Vineyard. She uses her own compost and focuses on a well aerated canopy to reduce the need for sulphur and copper. Enticing and delicate nose of white flowers, citrus zest and passionfruit. This wine is pure and viscous on the palate, with flickers of ripe stone fruit. Well integrated acids and almond and grapefruit rind phenolics keep the wine lifted and fresh.
