Ravensworth Marsanne 2007
Out of stock
White Rhone varieties love the Canberra growing conditions “ hot days and cold nights “ and Bryan and Jocelyn Martin ™s Marsanne in particular is superb. Leaner and more delicate than previous vintages but still with complex notes of stonefruit. nuts and citrus. So darn good.
Gary Walsh from Winorama gives it 92/100 “ It ‘s mid weight like a Chardonnay. has a touch of warmth poking through and finishes dry and flinty. A paradoxical wine it ‘s a great food style because it ‘s dry and fairly neutral but it also challenges you and demands your attention with every sip. I think it needs time in bottle to show its best but meanwhile you might like to decant it for best results. ”
“This is a very fine marsanne. It ™s long. slatey. shelly and delicate. the flavour of it interesting and the cellarworthiness of it obvious. I ™m an instant fan “. Drink 2008 2012. 94 points. Campbell Mattinson Winefront Monthly.
