Giaconda Estate Roussane 2022

The often-overlooked brilliance of this grape in Australia is undoubtedly proven with this exceptional 2022 release. The wine is superb, with aromas of pear, beeswax, apple, and yellow peach, enhanced by a spiced apple richness. The depth of roussanne’s fruit and oak notes—brioche, beeswax, pear, and apple—is elegantly elevated by acacia and jasmine florals and spice. This wine takes you on a journey to the heart of roussanne, offering abundant fragrance, texture, flavor, and length.

Founded by Rick Kinzbrunner, Giaconda vineyard originated from Kinzbrunner's transition from mechanical engineering to a profound interest in wine during the early 1970s. Over the next decade, Kinzbrunner immersed himself in the wine industry, embarking on travels and pursuing his passion. Following a brief period in New Zealand, he furthered his knowledge at Davis University in California and gained experience at renowned wineries in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, including Stag's Leap, Simi, and Matanzas Creek. Additionally, he worked in Europe for the Moueix group, co-owners of the esteemed Chateau Petrus in Bordeaux.
