Originating from Northern Rhone, Marsanne has been championed by Thabilk and they are now the largest and oldest holders of the varietal. With a following from all over the world and naed as one of the 100 Best Australian Wines by Matthew Juke this knocks it out of the park. If you are a lover of Viognier or after something different Marsanne is right up your alley.
James Halliday writes "“Marsanne has many things in common with Semillon: fragrant and lively in its youth, transforming itself with time in the bottle to rich complexity, acidity one constant, the need for a screwcap the other. Here Meyer lemon, a whisper of honeysuckle a promise of things to come."
Matthew Jukes writes "The Marsanne Lords of the Universe have kindly given us yet another wine to marvel at and no doubt it will taste as enthralling as it does today for the next twenty years because this is what this wine is undoubtedly able to achieve. I will never forget tasting some of the Purbrick family’s ancient Marsannes and coming to the conclusion that they are the most underrated, inexpensive, white wines in Australia. Well, nothing has changed because this 2014 is spellbinding. There are hints of waxiness, but the main thrust is one of pineapple husk and lemon zest and the acid is so intense and invigorating I felt as if I had been electrocuted.”
