2009 Yering Station M.V.R.

A blend of 50% Marsanne, 30% Viognier and 20% Roussanne. It’s a style I’d like to see more of here in Australia.

Smells quite beguiling with notes of honeysuckle, jasmine, peach, apple and citrus. Maybe a hint of green tea. Good palate weight and appropriate viscosity although it avoids being thick. There’s some defined minerality from the back of the midpalate onwards. Plenty of savoury, nutty character as well. Restrained phenolics on exit. Greater length and detail would make it something special but there’s a lot of pleasure as is. Good – Very Good
