Warramunda Estate Marsanne 2017

Clear

This particular vintage has also delivered a subtle and engaging musk highlight that we’ve not seen before. The palate displays great purity, texture and balance as always from this special block.
A versatile wine, this Marsanne partners beautifully with a range of different foods such as aromatic pork and chicken dishes, Asian herbs and spices and is a fantastic match with fish and shellfish.

The palate has classic Marsanne characters of stone fruit and complex spice, complemented by a delicate lift of frangipani, beeswax and almond meal. Luxurious leatherwood Honey is prominent and melts in with beautiful marzipan.

The wine will continue to develop over the next 15 years, becoming richer over time.

Winemakers Comments

Bunches were selectively hand-picked from the Estate
Marsanne block. Whole bunches were gently pressed,
and juice settled overnight thanks to gravity before being racked to 500L French oak puncheon barrels.
The juice was barrel fermented naturally via indigenous yeast at cool temperatures over a period of 3 months. Only a small selection of barrels was encouraged through partial malolactic fermentation in order to build layers of texture and complexity.
