The Range

Comprising regional, varietal wines of distinction, our Family Cellar range was created to be something special from the outset. The marriage of magnificent fruit from sustainable, old vineyards and traditional, hand-crafted winemaking techniques ensure beautifully balanced, elegant table wines that display a true sense of place.

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.

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.

Winemaking

Marsanne responds well to modern techniques of cold fermentation in stainless steel. However, it can really shine when given minimalist, old style techniques such as hand harvesting and wild fermentation. This wine has a portion fermented in barrel by indigenous yeast. Along with the balance all in French oak it was then aged on the lees for 18 months.

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.

Cellaring Potential

We have been making Family Cellar Marsanne since the 2003 vintage and all have shown the ability to age well. This 2015 Marsanne should also cellar well for at least 4-5 years, perhaps longer.

"From 50yo estate vines, a portion wild-fermented in French oak, matured on lees for 18 months. The vinification shows first in the light, bright yellow colour, then in the pronounced honeyed, honeysuckle, shortbread biscuit, and cream flavours and textures of the mouthfilling palate, trimmed on the finish by acidity." 
James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion, January 2018

"Medium yellow colour, showing some development, and the bouquet is rich and full, spicy and oak-influenced, with hints of buttered toast and honey. The palate is mid-weight and properly dry. Good balance and drinkability, with lots of flavour, albeit with a fairly prominent oak input." 
Huon Hooke, The Real Review, June 2018

"A richly-flavoured rounded marsanne with notes of beeswax, crème brûlée and dried fig. Gently creamy, golden and nutty; flavoursome and dry. The breadth and depth of the palate make it an ideal accompaniment to food." 
Toni Paterson, The Real Review, November 2018
