62% Roussanne, 28% Marsanne, 10% Viognier

This medium-full bodied white has a firm mineral vibrancy tucked into its soft, juicy fruit, resulting in a well-balanced wine. Driven by roussanne's low-key apple & pear flavors and clean texture, it's fleshed out by marsanne's richly-textured, mellow nuttiness and viognier's floral aromas and slick mouthfeel.

JAMES SUCKLING 94 POINTS - "There’s a waxy, dried apple and pear character with light cedar. It’s medium-bodied with creamy texture and a flavorful finish. Balanced and lightly oily, but remains vivid. Wild ferment. Roussanne, marsanne and viognier. Screw cap. Drink now."

"The Roussanne was aged in stainless steel, while the Marsanne and Viognier aged on the fine lees for 8 months in a combination of seasoned and new French oak barriques.

Inspired by the rich, luscious and mineral scented dry whites of the Rhône Valley, The Steading - Blanc is sourced entirely from the Descendant Vineyard on Roennfeldt Road first planted in 1994 on the Torbreck estate. The ripe, fleshy, barrel fermented Viognier and Marsanne gives the palate a textural edge whilst the Roussanne contributes it’s more flinty and austere personality." - WINERY NOTES
