Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) The Viognier throws the first punch in this wonderfully aromatic wine with its heavenly lift of candied ginger and crunchy, yet sweet white nectarine. A deeper look unveils the more complex Marsanne notes of green papaya and pistachio. An abundance of stone fruits hold sway over the sumptuous attack and mid palate. The finish is surprisingly savoury. The Marsanne's nuttiness is quite persistent and coupled with a delicate hint of sea spray. The complete package of stone fruits and spice with a long savoury finish makes this wine the perfect dinner party starter
