Marsanne 59%, Roussanne 41%. One of our favourites, the 2018 white blend continues a tradition of savoury depth and subtlety. Its youthful delicacy unfurls progressively with time, revealing layers of texture, flavour and nuance that offer fascinating drinking. Opening gently, the nose has aromas of jasmine, honeysuckle, pear and fennel. On the palate there’s a wonderful tension between the breadth of the fruit, the restrained pear skin-driven texture and the citrusy, quincy line of acidity that drives the wine effortlessly along your palate. Always a great food wine for now and in a decade’s time. – Sandra de Pury.
Nectarine, honey and mint, ginger and pink grapefruit. It’s bright, but fleshy, with a fine chalky texture, some straw-like character, tight citrus bite through white fruit, and a long and focussed finish. Top shelf. Lovely now, should age beautifully. 94+ points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front December 2020.
