Roussanne Marsanne, 2021
Shipped and sold by Moon Curser Vineyards
Our Roussanne Marsanne blend is a dry, medium to full-bodied white wine with a beautiful pale gold colour. The nose jumps out of the glass with notes of toasty brioche, white flowers, vanilla bean, chamomile and clove. The palate mimics the nose with flavours of crème brulée, lime, blood orange and limestone minerality. A portion of this wine spent four months in oak with lees stirring, and the resulting subtle richness adds an intriguing dimension of toast and baked apples. This is an elegant and graceful wine, with a smooth acid profile that allows its brightness and freshness to serve as a welcomed counterweight to the rich brioche notes. Aging will allow for the development of the fantastic secondary flavour characteristics typical of the Marsanne grape to shine through - look for marzipan, honey and caramel if you are able to set the wine down for three to four years. This wine drinks well now, but will benefit those willing to wait till 2026 or so before opening.
