2020 Black Label Marsanne

$28.00

honeysuckle  |  citrus honey  |  creamed honey  |  hazelnut 

750ml

Marsanne is an unsung hero in Victorian wine, originally from the Rhone Valley in France. Like chardonnay, it can take many forms, and can age a treat. Expect to taste honeysuckle, citrus blossom and hazelnut, and pay attention to the lovely oily texture.

This will become your summer wine – chill it down and enjoy it with soba noodles and tempura prawns.  We recommend buying a cheeky half dozen and hiding it away, as this Marsanne will undoubtedly mature in to something wonderful and complex.
