Sorry - this product is no longer available

Tasting Notes

The colour of this Marsanne is electric - a strong straw hue with flecks of green as it catches the light. The nose has delicate white flowers, candle wax, cantaloupe and honeyed fresh-cut apple. The palate has wonderful depth and flavour, yellow and white stone fruits intertwined with the plush, creamy autolysis of sur-lees oak ageing. The focus and energy of the wine is outstanding, the peach, honeydew melon, apricot and white mushroom flavours layer around a beam of lemon curd and bright, white stone-fruit that holds in the mouth impressively with silken texture. 60 dozen made. Hand bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Drink: Now to 2028.
Food Match: Serve with soft cheese.

Tasting Notes

The fruit for this wine is sourced from a very unique site, which at 550m above sea level is the highest altitude vineyard in the Hunter Valley. This elevation and continental climate lead to cooler-climate aromatics, expressing violet and bramble with hints of eucalypt. These dark, aromatically tantalising fragrances point to this wine's power. Indeed, Flavours are palate saturating with terrific clarity, texture and creamy depth; the richness is liquorice-like and richly packed with plush purplish fruits, plus
chocolatey soft tannins that glide invitingly along in tight and centered focus. There is a wisp of stalky freshness adding to the finish, complete with a final assertion of gentle powdery firmness. This wine is a real statement of the vineyard's pedigree, expressing beautiful balance and structure ideal for cellaring beyond 15 years.

Drink: 2019 to 2038.
Food Match: Beef, lamb or kangaroo.
