Ben Haines 2017 Roussanne (Upper Goulburn)

#17 Enthusiast 100 2019
Return to List

Ben Haines has emerged as one of Australia's finest Marsanne producers, and here he proves he's just as deft with Roussanne, balancing heady aromatics, texture, freshness and complexity. Pale gold in hue, it bursts with aromas of bruised apple, nectarine, fresh ginger, flowers, nuts and smoke. It's creamy with phenolic complexity, sliced through with mouthwatering acidity and closing on a long apple note. Christina Pickard
