17’Powell & Son Roussanne Marsanne.
Callum Powell convinced his father to make this wine. Happy he did so.
This is a 70%-30% blend.
FROM THE WINERY-
“The Roussanne Marsanne shows notes of butterscotch, honeyed citrus, stone fruit, white florals and apricot kernel. The palate is shows creamy phenolic texture, though not in the slightest part oily. Flavours of stone fruit and honey abound with light lemony acid to maintain the long finish. The wine finishes with white peach and subtle savoury ham hock, with persistent phenolics driving to the end of the palate.”
FYI- They have 2 $750 dollar Shiraz. Had to take a double look.😳 — 3 months ago

This is an exceptional inaugural release from Callum Powell and his Agricola label. It’s pure and bright with ample flesh and some beautiful Flaxmanns Valley concentration. Merv Steinert’s old vines made up the core of Rockford’s SVS Flaxmann in the day and they have a happy home here - 2018 — 9 months ago
