Aromas of fresh melon, citrus and green pear. Dry, with a light to medium body and crisp acid structure. Flavours of citrus (grapefruit) and green apple are pronounced with a wonderful mid palate texture and mouthfeel. Flavoursome and long on the finish.
“Young marsanne can be quite beautiful. But if you hold onto it for a few years something wonderful happens. I have tasted older examples of this marsanne and they are stunning. So here’s the obvious instruction: buy it now for a little sipping but make sure you hold onto a little more for another five or so years. The light lemony characters and light stone fruit becomes rich and deeply complex.”
