"40% marsanne, 40% roussanne, 20% clairette. This wine continues in the vein of being a little leaner and tighter than what is typically expected of these varieties. What sets it apart from other Marsanne/Roussanne blends in Australia is the addition of the Clairette, a most intriguing variety both in the way it grows, and the wines it produces. This wine looks vastly different at room temperature than when it is served too cold. It should never be served straight from the fridge!
On the nose this wine displays lemongrass, honeydew melon and just-ripe pineapple. On the palate citrus flavours dominate but there are some riper, rounder flavours that develop with time in the glass and will become a lot more prominent with some ageing in the cellar. There is a light phenolic structure to the palate giving this wine some crunch and complementing the length of flavour. We expect this wine to age extremely well over the next 10-15 years."
