Marsanne is a key component of the Northern Rhone’s Hermitage Blanc and it’s always been the intention to showcase this varietal with a single vineyard expression. The exceptional purity of fruit is completely reliant on the narrow window of ‘optimum ripeness’ and each row was assessed daily in the lead up to picking.
With a vibrant lemon, green hue and distinctive aromatics of lime, almond, stone fruits, thyme and spice the nose is immediately rewarding. A silky, opulent textural mid-palate with a richness and formidable length of lime fruits, fresh cream and gentle spice. The natural balanced acidity will enable this wine to cellar and will certainly reward those with patience.
