Our premium black label Marsanne Roussanne, is hand-picked and pressed, by Adrian Rodda. 94-point rating from James Halliday.
With notes of lavender, almond, mandarin, and peach, this white wine makes a stunning match to summer seafood dishes, zesty salads, and hearty cream-based pasta.
Adrian Rodda, the talented contract winemaker, always manages to build a degree of complexity into his white wines. Signature Marsanne introduction here, like a burst of spring, with apple and citrus blossom, jasmine, wild herbs, Golden Delicious apple, and spice. Rich layers of flavor flow across the palate, and a creamy mouthfeel finishes with fresh lemony acidity.
