Turkey Flat Butchers Block White 2014

A Rhone style blend of Marsanne, Viognier and Roussanne (49/35/16).

The longer this was open the more I enjoyed it. There's plenty of weight and textural appeal courtesy of the Marsanne component which sat in French oak for six months on lees. The remainder was all tank fermented.

Apricot and peach skin, lemon curd and honeyed characters. A dash of spice and defining acidity round this off well.  The finish lingers large. Rich with generosity, a smart wine this and worth the coin.

Very good.
