Alkimi Whole Bunched Marsanne 2019
A textural dream boat. Mind you, skin contact wines don't float everyone's boat, but if yours is sailing strongly with the wind, get hold of this beauty. A fabulous take on Marsanne.
Made from single vineyard Yarra Valley fruit with zero additions and oozing with personality, there's so much to love about this wine. It's juicy and lengthy, moreish and framed with fine spices. Ginger and ginger nut biscuits early before being seduced loads of blood orange and apricot kernels. A bright orange cordial like appearance in the glass captures the eye as the mouth is laced by fine soft spices, some citrusy tang and a crisp acidity. Large pours please.
Drink now to three years.
Region: Yarra Valley
