2019 Yeringberg Marsanne Roussanne
64% Marsanne and 36% Roussanne. Some skin contact. Old oak for 10 months.
White flowers, aniseed and ginger, stone fruit. It’s light, fresh in acidity, but has golden beeswax and cornflakes, and stonefruit flavour, a light but sure grainy/dusty texture, plenty of spice and perfume, and a crisp finish of excellent length and nutty complexity. Really like this. Drink 2022 - 2031+
Gary Walsh - The Wine Front (November 2021)
This starts out quite floral with lemon blossom and gardenia. It's restrained on the palate, with a hint of beeswax, pips and just-ripe stone fruit. Some phenolics pull through. It's largely a light refreshing take of these two varieties with an acid drive. A bit more volume wouldn't go astray. A good drink regardless. Drink by 2032.
