Michael Hall Greenock Roussanne, Barossa Valley 2014 $38
The deep-yellow colour indicates a very forward but also complex wine, with a bouquet of toasty, nutty barrel-ferment and honey, malt, almond-like nuances. The taste is full and rich, dry and slightly firm to finish. A good food wine. (11.5 per cent alcohol; screw cap.) Score 90 ★★★★ – view on huonhooke.com
Ageing: Drink now.
