2012 Mitchelton Marsanne

imageThe Nagambie Lakes in Central Victoria is arguably the home to Marsanne in Australia, even if I prefer the directions the variety is being taken in other regions. This is a solid example but it will need a number of years to become anything special.

Various white florals including honeysuckle. Almonds, nectarine, ripe lemon. Curved with phenolics squeezing the wine as the acidity drags it out. Whispers of vanilla and baking spice. Textured but doesn’t make a big deal about it. 90

    …This was awesome. Like a structured, funky Yarra chardonnay but, y’know, Marsanne. One of my favorite Aussie interpretations of this grape. I thought it was actually better than the pricier Airstrip. But I may have to go back & check.

    Reds-wise, I was similarly impressed with the Crescent.
