About the wine

Tasting notes

Aromas of macadamia nut, green almond, warm brioche, salted butter, hazelnut, yellow apple and melon. In the mouth it's layered, full-bodied, impeccably balanced and pure with white currants, white peach, quince, bitter citrus and serious minerality. It's a straight up tour de force that’s going to have decades of longevity. Best from 2015 through 2030

The Grape

Marsanne

Marsanne is a white wine traditionally used within a white Rhone blend, along with Rousssane, Grenache Blanc and Viognier. As a stand alone variety, this incredibly delicious grape makes wines with richness, complexity and deepness of fruit that ages extremely well. You'll find aromas and flavours of quince, orange citrus, apricot, beeswax and perfumed white florals. Beautiful wines!
