Marsanne Viognier 2016 Limited Release

Mouth filling tropical fruits, fresh acidity & nutty complexity

$28.00 CELLAR CLUB
$25.20

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Light straw. Lifted tropical fruits, grassy notes, mineral flint and spice.

Wine Making

Fruit was harvested at optimal ripeness and fermented at 14˚C to retain the inherent character of each varietal. The wine was partially matured in a mix of one and three year old French oak barrels and carefully blended just prior to bottling to attain a wine with perfect balance and complexity.

Cellaring

Whilst enjoyable as a young wine, we believe the wine has the necessary components to improve in bottle over the coming 3-5 years. A perfect match with flathead tails and an aioli sauce.

The Grapes: Marsanne 55% and Viognier 45% from Campbells Rutherglen vineyards.
Date Tasted: October 2015
Alcohol: 13.5%

Light straw. Lifted tropical fruits, grassy notes, mineral flint and spice.

Palate:

Medium bodied and full flavoured this wine is moderated by a natural acidity that is crisp and refreshing. Flavours of melon, white peach and apple blossom are accompanied by nuances of cracked walnut on the finish.
