Rocky Valley Road
The road out the front of Rusden was a gravel track when I was a kid. In summer, the white sand would blow over it when the council grader hadn’t visited for a while, which made it a treacherous affair negotiating the sandhills and potholes on our treddlies from the top of Rocky Valley Road down the hill to the family farm. At the entry to our property we’ve established a small plot of Trousseau, we think it’s well suited to the alluvial sand and cooling afternoon breezes that make Vine Vale such a unique terroir.
Somewhat earthy tones with underlying cherry, raspberry and cassis perfume. Multi-layered palate with citrus, some Amaro type herbal qualities, red currant, pomegranate & spice. Tannin matched by good acid structure and a clean lingering finish.
