Glen Garvald by Levantine Hill Marsanne Roussanne 2019

 

Clever. Levantine Hill doesn't miss the mark if at all and it's hard to see that changing any time soon with Paul Bridgeman at the wheel. This is a fabulous blend.

Yellow stonefruit, yellow flowers and a deft nuttiness that threads its way through in stealth mode. A 80/20 blend, soft spices and baked apples add further levels of interest as it walks tall and in a sophisticated manner. It developed marvelously over two days of tasting to show its aging capabilities for the medium term. Vanilla and marzipan deliver an impressive creamy drive. Smart indeed and a wonderful autumn evening wine.

Drink to five years.
