Sutherland Viognier Roussanne 2009

An impressive new white wine blend from Thelema’s Elgin property Sutherland has been launched, comprising 86% Viognier and 14% Roussanne. Barrel fermented in old oak and matured for nine months, it’s wonderfully pure with a good line of acidity, flavours including peach and an intriguing herbal note.

It suggests once again that while the conventional wisdom until now has been that Elgin would be well suited to Sauvignon Blanc, it’s too early to know what this relatively new ward is going to do best.

Sporting new packaging to differentiate it more clearly from Thelema’s Stellenbosch wines, the Viognier Roussanne sells for R80 a bottle from the tasting room.

Alc 14.3% RS 1.8 g/l TA 5.9 g/l pH 3.37
