Wild Duck Creek
Vintages: 2011 – 2019
A textural aromatic white wine full of flavour and life.
Made through the blending of Roussanne and Viognier, White Duck is full of texture and vibrancy. Fermented in 500L French oak barrels, it shows a lovely fusion of typical varietal characters. The Roussanne providing earthiness, roundness and fresh natural acidity, and the Viognier filling that palate with stone fruits and texture.
(55% Roussanne, 45% Viognier) – Roussanne makes a huge entrance here. This wine has a yellow colour and is very moreish. Medium bodied, plump, with fragrant aromas of almond meal and nectarine. Very typical of these Rhone varietals. Abundant flavours dominated by crushed nuts, nashi pear and hints of candy. It has a fleshy mid palate and a dry finish. With time this wine will become much richer. Bottled May 2018. Drinking Now and up to 5 years cellaring. 13.8% alc.
