arlewood marsanne rousanne impressive and superb says ray jordan

Arlewood Wines from Margaret River has long been one of our favourite producers here at The Vine Press, especially for their reds.   In 2008 they released their first white blend – Arlewood Marsanne Rousanne 2008 which we loved for its richness and balance.   Here’s what Ray Jordan wrote about the Arlewood Marsanne Rousanne 2009:    “A most impressive blend of these two Rhone varieties. It’s about 85% Marsanne. Superb fruit depth with some interesting creamy citrus characters. Clearly a good year for these varieties with a fineness that keeps the whole palate and structure in check. Will develop nicely over the next couple of years.” Cellar 5 years”    Ray Jordan “Guide to Wine 2010”.
