Rutherglen Estates, Renaissance Viognier Roussanne Marsanne 2016

Marc Scalzo, Chief Winemaker at Rurherglen Estates [Vic] has, again crafted a superb blend of those Northern Rhone white varieties.
He and team have massaged and teased all the varietal attributes of these 3 varieties into an integrated blend of freshness and complexity.
The Viognier component delivers brightness, honeysuckle and apricot flavours.
The Roussanne adds a balance of cashews and unctuousness whilst the Marsanne contributes to the blend's citrussy and acid backbone.
This rich and complex 2106 Rutherglen Estate's VRM delivers intense palate weight, elegance and harmony.
It is an ideal food wine equally at ease with fresh salads and spicy Asian dishes.
