Rochford Latitude Marsanne Rousanne Viognier
This is not a GST blend (Grenache, Shiraz, Touriga) nor WRX (Welschriesling, Ribola, Xinomavro) but an MRV (Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier) – sounds like sportscar really, and perhaps it should be because this is super-slick and delicious. Perfumed blossom tropical fruit flavours with a creamy and full texture. Brilliant food wine and I for one will be taking a case – thank you Rochford!
Light to mid straw in colour with a green hue. The nose is complex showing stone fruit and fig characters combined with subtle oak. The palate is rich and creamy with a good depth of flavour and balance. The acid adds length to the long clean finish. 35% Marsanne, 33% Rousanne, 32% Viognier
