Marsannne and all its nuttiness, honeyed tones and yellow stonefruit is a beautiful thing. This is a very good example from Yarra Valley producer Alkimi.
I met Kate Day, one of the two Kates behind the In Two Minds label, on my recent trip to Mudgee. Although Mudgee based, she makes her wines interstate with her sister-in-law Katherine Day, drawing parcels of fruit from a range of regions. An excitable and passionate winemaker, she says this wine pays homage to Don Lewis who was a great mentor in her early years.
Marsanne continues to be a strong performer for Stu Dudine and he says that this 2020 release is his best. If you like your whites with a little bit of shape, stretch your interest levels a little further and give this a crack.
This Guigal arrived as part of a sample pack from Yalumba in readiness for International Viognier Day on 30 April. If you were to describe this wine using an emoji, it would be 'meh'.
A terrifically long and textural blend here from Heathocote's Tellurian Wines. Roussanne, Marsanne and Grenache Gris come together and what a fabulous debut it is! More like this, please.
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.
