Tellurian Marsanne 2016

Australia, VIC, Heathcote


"Pale gold in colour. Aromas of pear, apple and honeydew are complemented by lifted florals. Medium bodied palate with lovely texture and complexity from subtle oak and lees. Pear, citrus, melon combines with subtle ginger spice. Well balanced acidity providing freshness and length."






"Marsanne is native to the Rhone Valley, and while it is usually made in Australia as an early picked, long term cellaring propisition, Tellurian make theirs true to the spiritual home. Late (hand) picked in Heathcote's warm days and cool nights of autumn, this captures the full expression of ripe Marsanne plus with French Oak maturation on lees Tellurian have built further complexity and texture. We thought this was such a joyous wine in perfect balance and ready to drink right now!'
