Marsanne 2017


Sold out

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.

"The Rhone variety has several different interpretations in Australia. This is a more restrained one with subtle use of barrel fermentation adding some complexity to the palate. It’s still reasonably restrained but the subtle honey and light citrus flavours are there. Its real charm is its ability to age and create wonderful toasty honey flavours. Patience will be rewarded here."

– Ray Jordan, West Weekend, Great Southern, February 2018

"Barrel-fermented Marsanne from the Great Southern. Pale straw in colour. It’s a weighty white with cream, wood spice, smoke and honeysuckle flavours/aromas all working as one. The descriptors here make it sound as though oak is dominant; it’s not. The weight is matched by energy. It’ll be better in a year or two."
