‘Very good wine.’ – 95 Points Huon Hooke

In the Rhone valley’s northerly appellation of Condrieu and Cote Rotie, Viognier is the dominant white grape variety. Creating premium wines, rich in character. Marsanne and Roussanne both hail from the village of Hermitage and are used in the regions great whites. When carefully blended together the resultant wine can be beautiful, balanced, textural and elegant.

 

A happy marriage of three varietals, treated individually to bring out the best in themselves & each other. To promote the textural backbone so integral to this wine we treat the Marsanne to French oak with 6 months lees stirring. Viognier remains in stainless steel, retaining freshness, bringing life & vibrancy to the palate. Roussanne finishes the blend perfectly, lifting the palate with fresh, tropical nuances. 49% Marsanne, 35% Viognier, 16% Roussanne

Ripper wine this. Smells like quince and lemon butter with some ginger spice thrown in. Light golden colour suggests richness, and it’s there – curvy edges but mouthwatering acidity underlying. Refreshing finish but layers of fruit, nougat and spice found throughout the palate. I imagine this with cold cuts or a terrine and how well it would go. Mouth-filling, delicious, interesting wine.” – 92 Points Mike Bennie

 

(Marsanne, viognier, roussanne) Mid to light yellow hue, with a sweetly lemon cordial-like aroma, attractive, creamy and faintly nutty from barrel fermentation. It’s soft and round in the mouth, rich but with some finesse and delicacy. Soft, clean and dry on the finish. Very good wine.” – 95 Points Huon Hooke
