Swartland Winery Limited Release Rousanne 2019

 

Roussanne is a grape that rarely finds itself expressed as a varietal wine; more often than not it is blended with fellow Northern Rhone grape Marsanne, or with a broader choice of varieties in a French-style white blend. This solo example from Swartland Winery is a full-bodied wine, with melon, citrus peel and stone fruit notes, supported by a subtle savoury nuttiness from careful maturation in French oak. This is a brave wine with great finesse, making us wonder single varietal Roussanne is not more common. Enjoy it with some substantial food, a creamy vegetable gratin perhaps or flavoursome hard cheeses such as Comte or Gouda.

The wine was fermented in second and third-fill French oak barrels in which it was then aged for a period of 6 months, with regular battonage. No animal-based fining agents or winery aids were used during the vinification.

Winery Information

 

The Swartland region of South Africa is at the forefront of the new wave Cape wine movement. Swartland Winery attempts to showcase the very best of this rugged, unforgiving terroir, crafting an expressive range of wines that typify the zeitgeist of the modern South African wine scene with the aid of vegan-friendly winemaking techniques.

Producer Note

Big open skies, arid deserts, the vast flowing landscape, with it's unforgiving climate and rugged bush vines, this is wild country, this is Swartland. The contrast with manicured Constantia and oh-so-cool Stellenbosch couldn't be greater. But right now, Swartland is the most exciting wine region in South Africa. A new wave of winemakers are making ground-breaking wines from Rhône varietals and it is part of a revolution that has got everybody talking. The Swartland Winery is producing iconic and award-winning wines in this fashionable and dynamic region.

Vineyard

The soil types vary from Hutton, Clovelly, Sandy Fernwood, and Kroonstad, but Malmesbury Shale dominates, with small patches of granite and Table Mountains and stone. The gravel sub-structure of the soil promotes good moisture retention, essential in this hot, dry climate.

Tasting Note

Bursting with citrus, melon and layered with enticing stone fruit aromas, follows through to the palate with peaches, stone fruit and citrus flavours, complemented by a succulent mouthfeel. A full-bodied style with a lingering, zesty aftertaste.

Serving Suggestion

Delicious with light lunches, cheese platters or fresh shellfish and sushi.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
