Extremely rare Margaret River gem

    • Marsanne is one of the lesser known white varieties of the world, with its home being the Northern Rhone area of France. It has been likened to Chardonnay without the ego, and can age superbly. The vineyard that Stu sourced these grapes from is probably the only planting in Margaret River - extremely rare!.
    • Aromas of pear, butter, spice and nuts will jump from the glass!  This Marsanne has a lovely textural palate, while retaining a delicious freshness and lightness.
    • Made in super-tiny amounts. Angels looking for something ever so slightly - but exotically - different will snaffle this before it disappears.

Ageing advice
Drink a bottle now to see what it is like, and try it again in 5 years. Its ability to age will surprise you.

Serving advice
This wine does not need to be super chilled. It has a breadth on volume of flavour that loves to express itself. Try and open it a few hours before you think you will be trying it. Decanting is also an option for such a young wine.
