TarraWarra Tasting Notes
TarraWarra’s 2018 Roussanne Marsanne Viognier
This piece of music is perfectly paired with TarraWarra’s vibrant and beautifully-balanced 2018 Roussanne Marsanne Viognier.
This is a wine with lifted honeysuckle perfume, fine acidity, great texture and length; the overall effect is a savoury wine that is ideal with a range of food types.
This wine is an excellent match for the lively dance-like rhythms in Symphony No.7.
