Winemaker's Notes

The 2006 Wrattonbully Vineyards Marsanne Viognier has aromas of white flowers and honey, complemented by the flavours of crunchy pear, white peach and hazelnuts. The palate has a savoury texture with a moreish warmth and creamy finish. Together these two varieties have created a wine of both elegance and power - the perfect foil for a great meal.

"The 2006 Marsanne (60%) – Viognier (40%) was fermented with native yeasts in seasoned French oak. It remained on the lees for 6 months with regular battonage. Medium straw-colored, it offers complex aromas of mineral, honey, candle wax, and pit fruits. This leads to a medium-bodied, round, ripe, intensely flavored wine with excellent length. Drink it over the next 2-3 years."
