2011 Truffle Row Shiraz Marsanne Roussanne
This traditional blend takes its name from the row of hazelnut trees cultivated at our winery amongst whose roots grow the famous and rare black truffles.
The 2011 vintage was one of the coolest years on record yet we just managed to get these grapes fully ripe. This is the paradox that enables great wine to be made.
The fine chalky tannins with equally expressive scents of spicy plum fruits and French oak harmoniously blend with the delicate stone fruit fragrance and minerality of the Marsanne and Roussanne. The aroma and flavour are intoxicating, while the wine finishes with a firm acidity and vibrancy ensuring a bright and long future.
This first vintage ever of Truffle Row is a perfect expression of vintage and vineyard that we believe describes great wine.
