Greg Ballington

@Delectable Wine this is the 2017 DeMorgenzon Cape Winemakers Guild Roussanne.

Our first time every at the Cape Winemakers Guild Auction and we will make sure to come back! (Tasting was on 9/28/18).

Fifth wine at the Friday Auction Tasting for the Cape Winemakers Guild and third still white wine. This is made up of 100% Roussanne by Carl van der Merwe from Stellenbosch. Aged for 12 months on the lees prior to bottling. Only 70 cases produced with 50 being auctioned in 2018.

Light greenish yellow in appearance. Rich nose with lovely floral characteristics, followed up by citrus rind, tropical fruits and some spices. Medium acidity (6.5/10) and light plus to medium bodied. A bit buttery in texture with notes of herbs, citrus fruits and some flowers. Long finish. Drink till 2026.

$$ - Tasted at the Cape Winemakers Auction. Average bid at auction was R3,712.00 ($43.72 a bottle) a case. Highest bid was R4,600.00 ($54.17 a bottle) and lowest bid was R3,600.00 ($42.40 a bottle).

Honey, chamomile, toasted hazelnut. Big and rich, but balanced by superb acidity & lower alcohol. Gets better every year! #stolpman #roussanne — 3 years ago

Chamomile, acacia honey, hazelnuts. Superbly concentrated, plenty of acidity, long. Lift & elegance. One of the best Stolpman Roussannes ever. @Peter Stolpman #ballardcanyon #roussanne — 4 years ago

#EGuigal 2013 #CotesduRhoneBlanc
Different from what I am used to, but then perhaps I really need to taste a lot more
#Viognier I guess this one may take some time to grow on me.
Floral, fresh pear, kiwi, and honeysuckle.

Ballard Canyon Roussanne 2016

Chamomile, dry cider, Fino, hazelnuts and sea salt. More skin contact, less new oak this year. Hermitage-like. Ridiculous. #roussanne #stolpmanvineyards — 3 years ago

Vin de Pays de l'Hérault Grenache Blanc Roussanne 2015

Kaffir, lemongrass, chamomile. Saline. Unctuous and long. Possibly the best Magellan Blanc ever. Special. #languedoc #grenacheblanc #roussanne — 3 years ago
