2016 “The Good Earth” Marsanne
The Marsanne grapes were sourced from Wattle Glen Vineyard. The vineyard is a small 1 acre block of unirrigated vines located in Mount Evelyn, Yarra Valley.
The appearance is golden. On the nose there are aromas of beeswax, grapefruit, lime and sweet tones akin to almond brittle. Floral tones of star jasmine and white lily are present.
The palate exhibits creamy, flinty tones with fruit notes of grapefruit, lime and green pear. Fuller honey, butterscotch and marzipan tones sit subtly in the wine and the finish is long and lasting.
