Richard Hamilton Marsanne 2012

This wine is a great alternative when feeling a little parched from the heat. Perfect as an aperitif, it would also match lighter foods nicely.

Subtle honey and peachy, the flavours are clean with a slight palate texture. Very good length and certainly refreshing when chilled down.

Well priced, this is great drinking and worth seeking out simply due to its approachability.

Marsanne does age well and I'd suggest this one will too. Having said that, the freshness is what I enjoyed and this trait will dissolve with age as it heads towards more developed honey and toast flavours.

Try something different!
