2017 RP1 (6 x 750ml Case)
The 2017 RP1 (white blend) has blossomed in bottle over the last few years, building power and intensity but holding onto that beautiful acid freshness and drive. The 2017 vintage was a rather cool vintage proving to be the first real test as to whether we were going to ripen these late season varieties on our site in cooler years.

|2017 RP1 Tasting Note
40% Marsanne, 40% Roussanne, 20% Clairette
A tremendously expressive nose of honey, pear, citrus and wildflowers. The pure fruit expression seen on the nose is also reflected on the palate. There is an array of flavours on display here from riper fruits including pineapple and melon through to citrus (lemon, lime and orange). This wine is powerful and concentrated with brilliant length and persistence, but shows a pristine acid profile and freshness. In time, expect the dominant fruit characters to subside and make way for nutty, more savoury complexities.
