The 2011 Marsanne is a fabulous white wine for red wine drinkers. If you love a red wine, you’ll love the structure, texture and phenolics of a full-bodied marsanne.
This wine shows a full expression of the variety with a lovely honey, ripe juicy pear, a subtle touch of grippy pear skin and a lift of ginger spice and lemon.
As a full flavoured wine, you’ll find this marsanne works with so many cuisines.
Pork in various styles works beautifully with this wine, as does many Asian salads, noodle dishes and spice flavours.
Furthermore, this aged marsanne is truly magical with seafoods and nutty, flavoured cheese like Comté and Tomme de Savoie.
The Yarra Valley is home to a lovely expression of the marsanne variety and is one of the original varieties planted in this cool climate region I call home.
