The Lost Plot Roussanne 2019
Our Roussanne is sourced from Sarah Gough’s Box Grove Vineyard. Textural, yet clean, this is a lovely wine with food.
Bright straw yellow with green tinge. Citrus, pear, honey with some almond and white flowers chiming in, with more almond and lemon curd aromas as the wine opens. The palate is round and textured with just enough breadth before refreshing acidity cleans up the finish. Nice mid weight wine which is fresh and neat, reflecting the slightly earlier pick.
We’re about finding great parcels of land that grow beautiful fruit, and turning that fruit into the wines we’re proud to add to The Lost Plot stable. In the past this has taken us into the wilds of the Languedoc, France, and around Victoria, Australia.
For our 2019 vintage we’ve had a lot of fun working with the Shelmerdine vineyards in the Heathcote region, and Sarah Gough of Boxgrove Vineyard in Nagambie, and we’re proud to add our new Rosé, Roussanne and Syrah/Grenache/Mourvédre to the lineup.
We’ve been lucky to work with the esteemed winemaker Paul Old (of Les Clos Perdus) on our past vintages. He has now passed the baton to the very capable hands of the very talented Matt Campbell (Mattara Wines & Crittenden) who continues the tradition of gentle handling and minimal mucking around to produce beautiful small batch wines that truly reflect their sense of place.
