Yangarra 2018 Roux Beauté Roussanne (McLaren Vale)

Winemaker Pete Fraser's passion for Rhône varieties shines bright on this wild-fermented Roussanne, which is aged in ceramic eggs with half of the fruit on skins for several months. The nose is an expressive mix of orchard blossoms and citrus peel with a hint of honey, beeswax and a cool stone character often seen in “egg” wines. The palate also has a beeswax feel about it both in flavor and texture. Pale gold, it's round and rich but buoyed by crunchy acidity. A characterful detour for Chardonnay lovers. Christina Pickard
