Young Marsanne loves seafood and lighter meat dishes, such as poached chicken. As it ages it matches well with stronger flavours such as roast chicken and veal

Drinking well now and will develop nicely in the bottle for the next 5-10 years.

Vintage Conditions

Vintage 2015 can be best described as having a mild growing season.
Spring was dry with temperatures slightly warmer than average and summer temperatures were average to below average for the entire
time. Most importantly there were no days of extreme hot weather which is ideal for flavour development. There was a period in late January of high humidity, but careful management of the vines kept the fruit free from disease. The continuing consistent warm days, enabled the vines to ripen the fruit at a consistent rate. This meant there was a reduced need for irrigation which resulted in a very strong vintage for all varieties.
Both white wines and red wines showed fantastic depth of flavour and finesse with the added bonus being our Reds having intense colour and tannins.
One to watch!

Tasting Notes

This wine is made using traditional techniques to maximise the textures that develop with age by the use of extended old-barrel maturation and lees contact. Our Marsanne is made in a ‘full yet tight’ style, with 100% barrel fermentation in large French oak vessels
with some lees stirring. The wine was in barrel for nine months. This complex wine has great fruit length and structure with texture and mouth feel added from the barrel fermentation.
