The Range These back vintage All Saints Estate wines are special wines that are carefully cellared deep inside the castle and released only when they are at their peak for your drinking pleasure.
Cellaring Potential We have been making Family Cellar Marsanne since the 2003 vintage and all have shown the ability to age well. This 2012 Marsanne should also cellar well for at least 5-6 years, perhaps longer.
Food Matching This is a richly flavoured wine with crisp acidity and subtle oak. As such it will be a perfect foil for winter favourites such as simply prepared Roasted Chicken with Root Vegetables.
Variety Marsanne came from the Rhone Valley in Southern France, where it had languished, unloved, for many years. Finally the French are realising what we, in North East Victoria, have known for generations, that Marsanne is a wonderful variety. Our vines are over 50 years old, resulting in fruit of uncommonly intense flavour.
The Wine Our Marsanne has enticing aromas of pear and quince with layers of creamy texture and earthy, nutty flavours from oak and yeast lees.
